  • Great!!! Here is little bit improvement to be gorgeous :) Those long legs at bottom little bit longer and no flat but little bit curvy and next improvement is some end stops at the end to prevent "apocalyptic failure" :D :D :D

  • Your design looks like something you’d find in a high end furniture store, it deserves to be put into production, albeit with a little padding as my old bones wouldn’t last long on such a hard surface. Very well done!

  • I like this, would it work as a rocker if so the hole could have a shelf for your coffee or soft drink with a gyro to stop spilling the drink while gently rocking, would love to work on the gyro part with you being a latral thinker I am not conventional at solving problems but it pays off 99% of the time and infuriates those around me at times. Love your builds about time one of you bikes could be converted to a wood cutter for camping, another idea generator or heater hot enough to do metal work.

  • This is cool. But if I made it I would have lined the seat with padding like foam of something and upholstered it with some kind of cool fabric or leather. That bare metal just looks like a back killer to me! haha.. Other than that this a rad sign and nicely out the box for Laura.

  • Very nice construction and it seems very comfy. It is a bit of an ugly duckling to my eyes, the wheelbarrow iron it too brutalist. I m sure you could improve the looks with some upholstery and or some more curves

  • Tolle Idee... von der Schubkarre zum Sitzmöbel! Ich habe in den 70zigern einen "Kippsessel" ausprobiert, der hatte noch eine Position mehr! War ein tolles Erlebnis, besonders der freie Fall nach hinten! Diesen "Kippsessel habe ich nirgends wiedergesehen, aber nie vergessen... Bleib gesund und ich freue mich auf deine nächsten Ideen 👍👍👍

  • Hallo Laura, ich schaue Deine Videos immer sehr gerne obwohl ich der englischen Sprache nicht mächtig bin. Aber das ist nicht schlimm, weil Deine Videos eigentlich selbsterklärend sind. Sogar mein Bruder der in Sidney lebt kennt Deinen Kanal 😉! Deine Videos sind von exzellenter Qualität und schönem Schnitt. Ich bin Fotograf und habe vor einem halben Jahr durch Corona das Basteln und Heimwerken für mich entdeckt. Ich baue kleine Thementische mit verrückten Ideen was mir besonders viel Spaß macht. Bei Dir kann man sich herrlich inspirieren lassen. Ich habe einen kleine Kanal und würde Dich gerne einmal besuchen und wenn Du es erlauben und ermöglichen würdest ein Video machen für deutschsprachige NLworld Zuschauer. Ich bin 65 Jahre alt und voll motiviert etwas anderes zu machen als andere. Und da bist Du schon ein Vorbild. Ich hoffe Du liest das hier und ich würde mich über eine Antwort von Dir freuen. Ich bleibe auch ein treuer Abonnent wenn meine Idee nicht auf Dein Wohlwollen trifft. Ps. Liebe Grüße und bleib Gesund Ulis. Blickwinkel @laurakampf

  • Lovely piece of design, and your processes are always great to watch, helped along by a soundtrack that keeps it all focused without lots of chat. Another YT channel 3x3Custom posted a video this week about her challenge to male a roll-up chair. Not the same starting point as you but very much the same intention - a comfortable chair. Worth a look, perhaps? Cheers!

  • This is a compendium of glue clamping techniques! I’m surprised that hot glue held up against clamping force so well in a few of them. I learned so much I can’t wait to try in my own projects. Thank you!

  • You can't design a new chair... Laura: "Hold my beer." Seriously, this is a cool concept. I'd like to see you expand on it. Perhaps making cushions or a rotating drink holder or a telescope mount for star gazing...

  • As you were building the chair I was calculating in my head how I would determine the angles and the sizes of each piece. I'm assuming you made a full scale layout to do this, but maybe it can be done on the computer also. It really did come out super nice, it's simplistic look belies the amount of thought that had to go in it. Looking forward to your next project.
