The Fish Bone Chair

112 Favourites
This is a photo of my Resistant Materials GCSE project. It is all my own design and work, i got the idea looking through some fossil books that had pictures of fish skelingtons in them It is about 4 and 1/2 to 5 foot tall and made of MDF. I got an 'A' overall, but im sure it was the exam that let me down not the chair. Although it is a fully functioning dining chair, it is more of a sculpture than a practical piece.

In all seriousness, if I had seen this before my chair project was due this Thursday, I totes would have copied it.

Well, no, but still, this is really cool and worth stealing of the idea!

But I wouldn't do that.

This is awesome.
I can appreciate how much work this must have taken.

what's MDF?
Thephotographiser's avatar
MDF = Medium Density Fibreboard. Its basicaly sawdust and resin mixed together and made into a wood board. Its strong and durable.

And thanks :)
If i could make loads of 'em id sell you a set! lol - but i cant be bothered!
