I am trading a set of chairs I made for anything.
I have a small number of these chairs. I will trade them for anything that you think has a similar value.

This kicks ass. You might consider putting your costs up there. Like how much does it cost to create a set? Are you planning on making more?

I am not close or I'd consider it.

What would be fun would be for me to sponsor a trade. Like I pay for you to make a set (or send you something in trade), you trade the chairs for something else and send that to me (presumably something that wasn't expensive to ship). That make any sense?

This is seriously awesome!

Those are beautiful. If I were A) close and B) a more famous photographer, I'd definitely take you up on that.

I am in SD! Time to consort with my wife about what would make a good trade...

Still trying to think of something worth trading, but my wife was browsing through your other projects and we discovered Fridgebots, which I thought was awesome enough to post to the blue: http://www.metafilter.com/108784/Attack-of-the-Fridgebots

I agree. I'm a bit stumped about what to trade but that is one freaking awesome chair.

Thanks, the chairs were pretty expensive to make. I don't want to focus too much on the cost, because I don't want that to be the determining factor of "value". I hadn't thought of continuing the trades, but that is a great idea. I'm gonna think more about it, thanks!

The A) closeness is a valid issue, but B) if you have a great print I'd love it!

Awesome, trading local would be great. Yeah, one of my other projects, FridgeBots, only has 5 days left on kickstarter, but probably isn't going to reach its goal this time. Thanks for the support though.

Everyone else,
Thanks for the positive support, it helps!

This project looks awesome. I have a bunch of dried morel, porcini and hen-of-the-woods mushrooms I wild-harvested that might add up to be a decent trade! My dad lives in San Diego, and I am pretty sure I could finagle him to pick up the chair for me if you're interested.

My most popular print is of this image, and when it's printed well it can look very nice indeed. However, shipping to the UK is just out of my price league right now :(

These are really great. I love the project, too. Keep us posted!

That table is so so beautiful.

There is a picture of me sitting on it at here.

Thanks for all the positive responses, I think I am going to trade with a couple metafilter people who contacted me. If you check out the site in a while, I should have updates about how the trades went. If anyone knows anyone else who would be interested, let em know. I still have chairs to trade.

Wow. So cool.

I would do this in a second if I wasn't looking at $150 shipping costs. These are lovely.
