I've just made my first prototype barstool. WOW, what a hassle!!!! Never in my life have I struggled and wrestled and fumbled with so many flipping, flopping fidgety little pieces of wire as they refused to do my bidding. It was like holding down an overturned cockroach while trying to glue something onto all its legs at once.... (sorry!) It's been about 24 hours since I first started this little job, and it's required an immense amount of problem-solving skills --- approximately equal to that required for the REST OF THE FREAKIN' FILM SO FAR!!! Looks pretty wonky, doesn't it? Heh... wait till you see the flipside:
Sorry, seeing this is bringing back the pain and suffering it took to make this crazy thing... I need a minute.
Ok... I'm better. Here's a little pile of legses I bent up last night.... enough for 5 more such monstrosities. I can only hope it gets easier after the first one...
It should actually, because I've now devised a nice little jig that I can assemble the parts on. Still need to come up with one for gluing on the little ring underneath though... extremely FIDGETY.....
(Oh, and don't miss the other new post directly under this one... I kind of buried it right after making it)
