Dynamite Chair Design


I love the ingenious creations that can result from having limited resources (tools, materials etc.). Here's a prime example. It was made by a miner at Independence Mine (gold) in Alaska from an old dynamite box. It probably dates to the late 1930s or early 40s.



So cool! Now I just need to find a dynamite box...

  1. Very nice.
    Are the front and back joined to the ends by dowels or are there screws under there? My eyes are too bad to tell.
    Get the boy's done yet? :)

    1. Sometimes I dowel and sometimes I screw and plug - this one is screw and plug. No, I'm working on the boy's but it is not done yet...
