This vintage outdoor in style, lounge chair into a fresh, modern, indoor/outdoor chair with no upholstery experience. So let's go ahead and it started on modern builds so resilient, challenged me to find a vintage piece of furniture that I could up cycle into something awesome. So then I checked Craigslist and I found this old in style. Lounge chair those made for an outdoor patio set. The first thing I did was cut my plywood, the size that I'll be making the wooden shelves for the seat covers.
Out of then I unplugged and took off the guard from my table saw so that I could lower the riving knife that way. It didn't set higher than the saw blade. This allowed me to raise my blade until I was almost cutting through my material. The plywood I'm using is just over an eighth of an inch, and I need to make these repeated cuts so that I can bend it to match the curves in the chair frame. This technique is called cutting. Essentially, you just remove enough of the material that the plywood becomes more flexible and able to fit the curve of the frame on the right side.
I space all my cuts out a sixteenth of an inch, but it turned out. I actually liked it more on the left side, where I space them out in an eighth of an inch the same as the table saw blade. So now that I cut the plywood to its final size, I used that test piece to lay out all of my lines. For where I want my curve cuts to be, I don't want to cut all the way across the plywood only where it'll be bending that way, it's more sturdy and more rigid, where I need it to be after I set my fence the right distance from where I wanted my cuts to start. I could cut one side spin, my piece around and cut the other.
Then I moved my fence over a quarter of an inch 1/8 of an inch for the table, saw blade and the other eighth of an inch for the spacing, and I just kept doing that over and over again until I met the line that I made earlier. This process is really more intensive during the setup. You just want to make sure that your curse is starting and ending in the right spot, so that your curves match your frame that and making sure that you don't cut through your plywood.
