Claire and Kelly had the tedious task of gluing structural supports to every intersection of the outer walls and inner grid. In an effort to use every bit of cardboard we could and minimize waste, these structures were made from leftover scrap from previous cuts.
Once the inner framework and outer walls were secured, we could then fix the skin on the top and bottom of the chair. Once we had the skin cut to size, we scored it on one side. This allowed the cardboard to conform to the inner and outer curves. We glued them down to the grid and cut away any excess.
By the end of class, we were almost ready to skin the second chair. Once we do that, we would finish both of the chairs by taping the edges. Its a very exciting time for T Group, we are well on our way to finishing this project.
