Cedar Chair in Motion
Made of fresh cut Cedar
branches, this chair was held together by mortise and tenon
joints, some twine, and the tension of the green wood.
Took three days to fit all
the pieces together and finish the back with springy
cedar branches that flexed as a person sat back against them, each topped
off with a sharp knife edged point. On the same day it was completed,
the chair was destroyed; a remarkably liberating act which reverted the entire chair back to
just an idea.
Materials: cedar branches, trees
and trunks, twine, nails.
assorted tenon cutters and forstner bits, cordless
drill, wormgear drill, hammer, hand
saw, chainsaw, snips, wire cutters, chisel.
