May I introduce you to the Tero Eero Racing Seat #1
This post should honor the inspirational source for this construction and inspire others to build even better ones then this creation.
It was a pure joy to plan and build this piece of furniture. Especially because the result really met my expectations. I wanted a rigid and durable construction with almost no shaking or loosening of screws or so. On the other hand I wanted a construction that is suitable for kids and grownups. And I mean also the tall fraction. So some basic function must be adjustable.
Furthermore I wanted a relatively (ahem..) slick construction that can be put into place within minutes. That is why I am so thankful to Tero and Eero, since their racing seat gave me the important clue on how to approach the seat.
So I started by learning SketchUp in order to get a feeling about dimensions, proportions, parts and so on:
After having figured it out on a virtual level, it was time to order pieces. That was the day the puzzle started:
At first I tried to get the rough picture and made a “dry training” with the bottom part.
The check was good – so no more hesitation – let’s do it.
And finally at home 😉
