Great info Steve.
You are doing a Awesome job also.
Welcome to the Pielock Star trek torture chamber.!
This involves every clamp I own, I’m going to glue the lower half tomorrow.
Test fitting the triangles with some tape. They are to far apart in this picture.
Steve - How much of a gap are you leaving between the triangles?
1/4 I’m thinking.
I test fitted the front panel earlier today. This is coming together slowly. This is a fun build!
What’s the kitty’s name?
Olivia, she is 3 and a little spitfire!
Pulling ab all nighter, now the bottom back is glued and clamped
Compound curves, this plywood is amazing!
Out of the clamps, look at this compound curve.
Glued and clamped the front plywood.
Plywood skins are on, looks good so far…
Looks excellent so far. Mess something up. Be mortal!
Looks Really good Steve.
Can’t wait for more.
Beautiful work, Steve. Gives you a new appreciation for the Paramount wood shop, doesn’t it? I’m sure they were cursing Matt J. just like you are. Speaking of “puffy sides,” the replicas done for “Through A Glass Darkly” on “ENTERPRISE” were SUPER puffy!
I’ve always wondered it these chairs are actually comfortable with the new back. They look fine…but maybe they just hit the back awkwardly, I dunno.
Actually they are very comfortable, I was surprised the first time I sat in one.
Material fit is terrible on them, look how they lean backwards too. It looks like a box I’m sure they just didn’t have the time or money to do it right. It almost looks like its drooping backwards?
Did some further bottom edge refining on the areas where the chair back meets the chair. Smoothed the bottom edge to make it easier to attach checkered material with no wrinkles. I’m very please with how it turned out. This piece turned out to be quite strong no flexing once it is on the chair. All the compound curves lends to its rigidity.
This is what I call the LT. Uhura pose of the chair.
Quick little side note: Look at how many displays aren’t functioning in this scene. Only four out of ten are working!
@pielock373, That looks amazing! I love the “Lt. Uhura pose”…spot on! I have to agree with you, I think the sides of the backrest appear to be foamless.
I do not have screen copied patterns so I will be eyeballing the whole thing, Can you tell me what the height is from the floor to the very top of the backrest (while in position on the chair) as well as the height of the backrest itself? If it isn’t too much trouble?
