So I really haven't made much stuff but I'm super excited to dive into the deep end of D&D crafting. I've watched hundreds of vids from Scotty, Wylocch and BMC and have learned so much.
I'm working on gathering my materials and tools and hope to claim some crafting real-estate in the basement real soon!
To entertain myself I thought I'd take a crack at tavern chairs (for a table setup). I started by building a paper template and printing it out. ( there is a link to the PDF below) Folding, cutting and glue with glue stick. Yielded a pretty stable chair. A smidge of hot glue on each leg at the point it connects with the seat made the legs stiff and tight. I then added a small bead of hot glue up each back rung to stiffen the backrest and give a slight rounded look to the up-rights. I did a quick paint job, just to see it without the distraction of the template lines. I think a bit more painting will make a big improvement. I then cut a couple of small flat toothpicks to make the braces for each side of the legs and added a small trim on the back of the seat where the backrest starts.
The final chair was surprisingly stiff and secure, sits nicely and looks pretty cool I think. The cost of these is so low I hardly know how to calculate it. Basically you got one laser print or inkjet, a few dabs of hot glue, glue stick, two flat toothpicks (optional) and a bit of paint. Would love any feedback you all may have!
Nicely done chairs, and it's great that you shared your template. The hot glue on the back spindles and the toothpick pieces really give it a 3D effect - nobody would guess that it was from printed paper.

margaret: Putting this here because I don't know where else to post it - the site is not letting me post responses today. And it wouldn't let me log out and relog either. Not sure what is going on

Draklith: have your internet settings changed? first thing i"d check, sometimes when you install a new program or something, it will change your settings

margaret: It eventually resolved itself. The computer did update at some point this past week, but I never changed anything in the browser settings to resolve the issue. This site just seems to get cranky with my computer sometimes

thelibraryghost: Is thread necro-ing frowned upon here? (It would be in the Crafting Tips and Tricks forum, not just adding comments in General Crafting.)

sgtslag: @theliibraryghost: No, go ahead and cast Raise Dead -- just don't re-animate them...
