Título propuesta*: uHbench

Descripción de la propuesta*:

The uHbench is an open source public bench made out of a standard EPAL-EUR pallet. With little tools and in just a couple of easy steps, you'll be able to turn a wooden pallet into a bench without dismounting completely the pallet and by reusing almost all of its components. The design has been released under CC-by-sa lincense and has been build many times in places around Belgium, France and Spain already.

En la exposición, cada propuesta va acompañada de una cartela en la que se detalla, a parte de sus autor@s, su receta de construcción. Es por ello que os pedimos:

Ingredientes *:

Lista de los materiales usados para la construcción de la propuesta

  • 1 standard EPAL-EUR pallet
  • A pack of 5cm nails

Herramientas *:

Lista de las herramientas necesarias

  • Carpenter hammer
  • Wooden saw
  • Crowbar

Preparación *:

Describe brevemente los pasos a seguir para la construcción y montaje de tu pieza
Follow the set of instructions given in the pdf that you can find here: http://xuv.be/IMG/pdf/uh-bench.pdf Roughly, you'll be making one saw cut next to the middle board of the pallet. You will then remove 3 to 4 boards. One will be cut to make the back legs of the bench. You will then reassemble all the pieces together. If you care, you can also reuse the nails from the pallet instead of using new ones. With some training, this whole process can be done in less than 20 minutes by one person.
