The Brass Chair By Peter Klimov For my project, I decided to create something new and different, something that no one has thought of before. So, I decide to create a chair made out of brass casings. The idea came to my head, when I stood in my garage and looked around for possible materials that I could construct a chair from. First, I thought of wire and rope but then I figured that the rest of the students would use the same or similar materials. So I continued to look and thought more to myself about the design. I wanted to create a chair that shows authority and makes a person feel powerful when sitting in it. For that reason, I wanted it to be lifted high enough and the chair had to have bulkiness to it, like a linebacker on the football team, to reflect the strength.

After the chair was assembled, there was lots of glue sticking out between all the cases. I had to fix this problem, so I went online and looked for a small picture of guns with a yellow background to match the brass color, printed the picture out and glued it to the back of the chair, to cover the access glue. To give the chair the last finish, I went to Wal-mart and purchased two small toy guns and glued them to the side of the hand rests, making my guns & ammo design complete....
