How To Make a Belt Chair with Blake Sloane
The first question is what is a belt chair? Belt chairs are a creation of Rebuilding Exchange production manager Blake Sloane’s re-use oriented mind. Blake combines an old, unloved chair with about a dozen old, over-loved belts to make a creative, interesting chair.
Here’s what you’ll need:
-#8 ¾ inch wood screws
-#8 finish washers -Razor blade -Drill with pilot bit and screw bit
And here’s how to do it:
1) Apply Finish with Rag
2) Lay Out Belt Design
3) Pre-drill holes
4) Fasten Belts with Screws/Washers
5)Trim Off Excess
6) Weave & Repeat
7) Reattach Seat
It’s a fun, easy project that should take about an hour and cost you no more than $20 (plus the chair and belts).
