Seat It Process Journal - Glue and Clamp Stage All the staves were done, and I glued them together and tied them up together with rubber band. The first picture is how it looked when I first gathered I first put it together. The second picture is a picture of me putting the rubber band and the wood stick in the third photo. The wood block holds the rubber band together.
Why The reason I need the wood block is because the rubber band is not a big whole piece but something tied up together, so it is necessary to put them together.
Change Of Plan The staves were much longer than I expected, so I may not put the cushion on but have a very thin layer of sponge on the top and cover it with cloth.
Area Of Interaction Today’s AOI is human ingenuity because it is ingenious of us to think of the wood block thing, or else it would of been very difficult to tie and preserve the shape. I thought that it is very ingenious to make the small and needy object.
Research I researched on PVA glue, Polyvinyl acetate. It is actually quite confusing because PVA may refer to a variety of things for exp: Paralyzed Veterans of America, or people’s volunteered army. Any how , PVA is a rubbery synthetic polymer with the formula C4H6O2. It is raw material to make Polyvinyl acetate. It was discovered in Germany in 1912 by Dr.Fritz Klatte. It is produced from ethyne, acetic acid, and mercury salt. This adhesive is used for porous materials, particularly for wood, paper and cloth. The wood glue PVA which we are using is called white glue.
What Next? I am going to cut out the footstool top with coping saw and measure+mark out with a ruler with round edge and using pencil.
