Refinement

 

The first prototype was successful...

in that it supported his weight and was actually quite comfortable. However, the craftsmanship left a lot of room for improvement. To create a cleaner exterior I knew I had to tidy up my undercarriage support system. Here, I'm working out how to improve exterior appearance by hiding all joining meth-ods within the undercarriage. Instead of slotting (and interrupting exterior lines) I chose to join support braces directly to the interior of the two outer supports. The seat remains relatively the same with some minor tweaks in shape and scoring methods to create a smoother curve with fewer wrinkles.

Another 4'x8' sheet of cardboard, lots of hot glue, and many, many hours later... Bruno had his finished product.
