- We begin disassembly by removing the seats, which are held on by a wood screw through the angle braces at the corners. The chair parts are, for the most part, held together by glued joints with wooden dowels. Most of the joints are loose and can be separated by a few taps with a hammer.
- Here we see parts from two chair backs. Why not put them together? See step 3.
Step #3: PrevNext
- To make the "Mirror Pot Chair" all we need to do is:
- 1. Re-glue any loose joints on the back section with wood glue;
- 2. Re-aim the side pieces since the front of the chair was wider than the back;
- 3. Clamp the two backs together;
- 4. Sand or cut the angles on the corner braces to fit the clamped parts.
Step #6: PrevNext
- We have used the back and sides of two chairs. Now let's use the front legs and side pieces to make a table. The side pieces will again need re-aligning and the corner braces will require re-fitting. Use glue and screws to fasten everything together. Add a scrap of plywood for a top. Sand, paint and trim.
- For the next piece, a change of thought.
Step #8: PrevNext
- The wheelbarrow requires more cutting and fitting than the previous two items. In order for the handles to be sturdy enough for real lifting, the top corners of the legs need to be notched to the dimension of the handles, then fastened in all directions with glue and screws.
- Two small triangle-shaped pieces of plywood are needed for the front corners. Two metal "T" brackets with slots for the axle are screwed to the axle supports.
