Hello pervy people! This post is a reply to one of my FetLife friends who asked about the Y-chair project I made a long, long time ago (I'm thinking sometime around 2002). This Y-chair was my first attempt at making a piece of bondage furniture, and the idea was initially to have something to anchor a girl wearing the F-suit to (which curiously enough never happened). I wanted something that could hold the legs apart, and allow the waist and torso to be completely strapped down. Immobilization with access.
It ended up being a prop in a photo shoot we did with the amazing Darby, back when I was working with Gnjal of RavensWalk fame (an amazing photographer and all-around creative genius). He took these two pictures of Darby looking fabulous all strapped down.
The whole thing is on wheels, so once she's buckled in you can move her wherever you like. The legs of the upholstered pad weren't connected with screws, so you could get straps right up close to her crotch. It worked beautifully.These mid-construction photos show some different angles. I didn't have a table saw at the time, so the angled cuts were a bit challenging, but overall I was pretty happy with how it turned out. It's a very sexy piece, and looked great with an armbinder/hood combo and lots of straps. I always loved the shape of the small waist and curvy hips. If I had to do it again today, I'd make some kind of accommodation for supporting or restraining the head.
Unfortunately, due to a lack of storage space, I had to get rid of it a few years ago - so I gave it away to one of my friends in the bondage industry. But I still see it being used in various productions made by different people from time to time. It's well-built of quality materials, so it should last a long time! Have a happy life, Y-chair...
