This is a concept for a revamped ping pong game which is surprisingly really fun and makes a good party game.  It’s called WTF Ball!?!  Basically you put two tables together so that the ping pong ball can run along the track.  The object is to push the ping pong ball to the other side while your opponent of opposing team tries to push it back to your side and over the edge of the table.  The thing is you can’t touch the ball, you have to fan it acrossed and is very fun and gets everyone really riled up.

WilsonArt Lamination Update January 31, 2011

Ok so my chair for the WilsonArt Lamination contest is actually almost done but I forgot to take pictures of it completely laminated.  These are the updates though of the lamination in progress.  Each of the triangle braces weren’t the same (because of my inability to make multiples of triangle braces perfectly) so I marked each one on the chair and chiseled it away with a hammer I machined from scratch and my trusty CRKT M-21 Knife.  That’s right I chiseled it with my knife and they turned pretty good.  The lamination is difficult because of the weird angles I had to custom cut each piece exactly instead of having the laminate overlap and cutting it off with a router.

WilsonArt Final Model Update January 19, 2011

My chair is coming along.  I have the arms and seat together now and have been trying out the fit.  As I was testing the fit and comfort, I came up with a better solution to my design.  I know it’s not good to change up right in the middle of the build but I have this new design all ready to go.  Instead of making the chair use the same principle as the Z-Chair (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_FFO__BprTao/SCwAgk2o9II/AAAAAAAAAvQ/EiR0npCTlCA/s400/z%2Bchair.jpg)  I wanted to make the chair rock back and forth on a pivot.  It’s easier to look at the pictures then to write a whole book on here explaining how it works.

My entry for the WilsonArt Contest is currently in the works.  I couldn’t afford the metal so I had to change up the design and material choices.  My chair is now being created out of wood and because of the angles, I had to add braces onto each angle.  This is the progress so far on the chair, I’ll keep posting as the chair progresses.

This is a model of an organic chair in Solidworks rendered in Hypershot.  I was learning and experimenting with drawing organic shapes in solidworks which if you know solidworks is no easy task.
