Garden stools

a shot of mold flipped upside down

 the lid

score the hell out of it and assemble the two pieces

rough form


i cut the groove on the potters wheel to make a channel to fit a wooden expanse that would connect the two stools, providing seating for two additional people

male/female bent ply press mold

female section, 4 parts + angle braces

there is a .5" offset between the male and female sections

first bend with 3 pieces of 1/8" poplar bending ply, results were promising.  for this go i just did the seat and back, didn't do the arms because i felt that this kind of bending ply couldn't handle the curvature 

here's the male section, 5 parts, getting ready vacuum bag and carbon fiber layup
