  • Made myself a wheelchair

    I've been wanting to to do this since I got the chair.
    3/4" luan and the casters where a buck ninety nine at Ernie's tools and flea market. It's not attached so I can use it with other stools or use it for a mobile base.
    I use luan for alot of different projects. I get it from Lowes and I always poke through the pile for the red sheets. It has a really nice grain pattern, I gave it a quick shot of clear to show the grain a little better.
    It looks very nice when finished.

        Oily BE VERY CAREFULL when you push backwards that there is nothing under the wheels or you will fall backwards. All of our 4 wheel stools have been banned at work because of this.

              Thanks guys, It's not really intended for traveling. I have my cutting area set up like a three sided cubicle. Saw center, Drill press, blades etc left and work table right. The area is just big enough if you change location for any length of time I had to drag the chair and it got to be more of a problem as my hip degenerates.

                  I've noticed you have to turn up the vacuum a little.

                      Oily,
                      I have a chair similar to that with the wheels attached to it. I sweep around my work place a couple times a day. All it takes is a small piece of wood and you fall over backwards, or some way. But it is handy as I have a small work table beside my saw.

                        I don't know Oily, most of your creations are absolutely fantastic, but this one has me concerned.

                          None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                          What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                          The bags seem easier on the surface.
                          But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                          Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                          As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                          I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
