The Chair

This is an industrial 10 gauge stainless steel mold I had designed.  Melted wax is poured into it to create a massive 1000 lb chair. It is then taken out of the mold and placed on top of a  six ft. high steel pedestal stand where it is resting on electrical heated elements.  The wax chair melts and is funneled into the pedestal where the mold is placed. The mold is taken out and a new chair is created.
