Once the stain had dried I began applying some clear coat spray on the inside and bottom.
Then I brought it to it's new home at the drawing table.
This thing matches my desk almost perfectly. The color is the same, but the seat is glossy, whereas the table is matte.
Inside the seat I put some boxes with my chalk and color pencils as well as some pastels.
To give you an idea how large the seat is, below is a blue cushion I had on the folding chair I was using.
Now here is the same cushion on my new chair. The seat is very large, but that's quite all right. It feels good to sit on.
I found some leftover 2x2 seat cushion foam I had which almost fits the seat. I think in the future I may attempt making a seat cushion for this chair.
The chair also fits nicely under the table. Also when I sit on the chair at the table my legs don't hit the bottom of the desk.
This was a fun build. It took me a total of 3 days to make and I really like it.
But remember that first chair leg I tried to make? I decided to try and fix it up.
Both chairs came out pretty well, and are both slightly different. The second chair's seat used a different type of plywood giving it a different look. The back rest of the second chair also uses smaller pieces of wood.
For the chair in my office I decided to store my clamps which I use often for my various projects.
The second chair actually wound up in my workshop, and it's a great place to store all my brushes.
Now I'll have to make some seat cushions. But that's a task for another day.
