Here’s the jig for the top of the chair. It’s all 1/4” A36 plate. Still need to make the bending dies, and a stand for the whole thing… The chair only uses two pieces of steel rod, hence the two part jig.
So, I’m in the smack-middle of building a jig to bend steel rod into chairs. It’s a two part jig, the base (shown), and the top. Look close for the awesome joinery at the corners… Many more posts to come on this project!
