Making Instructions (Login to see the full instructions)

Melt your pegs in an oven, not tool long that they lose all shape but just so an unusual warped effect is achieved and you can still see the general shape of the pegs.
Cast your pegs in a resin block, I cast mine in a block of about 350mm x 280mm. This will need to be done in stages and may need proffesional help due to safety precautions. The inside of the block will have to be panted in order for it to exit the mould easily. The top will then need sanding down to a nice smooth finish.
Machine your reclaimed wood into the legnth pieces you will need. You will need:A frame slighty bigger than the pegs you are casting 2 longer pieces of wood, about 1.5 metres in legnth2 shorter pieces about 80cm3 dowels slightly bigger (2 inches) than the width of the frame your pegs
Machine the two longer pieces so that above the seat there are indentations. About 10 on either piece will do. This is so that the washing line can wrap around without glue or adhesive.
Drill into the longer pieces where you will insert the dowels. One will need to be 5 cm from topOne 5 cm from bottomOne where the seat will rest.
Drill the point at which you would like the chair to pivot. Attach bolts into these holes, not too tight so that the legs will not move. Use washers for free movement.
Attach tray to the shorter legs at one end using the hinges. Make sure that the peg tray can still move freely about to go in the position you wish it to be. Faces may need to be sanded and cut so that the hinges it on the wood without problems.
You will need to drill a hole into either side of the bigger legs, going into the frame as well as the legs. This is so when sat on the seat will not move. However, the dowles you will insert can still be taken out so that folding of the chair is possible. It is easier to do this whilst things are in place so that the holes are spot on.
Insert the pegs cast in resin into the frame
Finally wrap the washing line around the back of the chair in a fashion that will support the user.
