A super cool folding chair!

I actually found this project here on Lumberjocks quite a while back when jdtorque posted it. He found it when another LJ, eddie posted it. So I know it’s not the first time it’s been on here but I am aware that not every LJ has seen it (I recently met a fellow LJ for the first time, he hadn’t seen it).

But I figured for those who have seen it and may be contemplating building one wouldn’t mind a decent video of how it works and such and to see just how it is assembled.

Hope y’all enjoy!

Nice job on BOTH the chair & the video.

You make it look like even I could build one!

Lol thanks! I’m sure You could easily. It’s just quite a few parts and a bunch of holes to drill….

Nice video, Sailor. That looks like a fun project. I think I’ll have to try it sometime.

Thanks for posting this. I’ve been thinking of building some chairs that are easy and inexpensive to make. How much did making one chair cost you?

Doug,
As for cost, I’m not exactly sure. I think $13-$14…... Not much

Sailor,
That’s a Great Project, a Great Video and looks to be the perfect Campfire Chair.

I think 6 or 8 of these would be a perfect winter Shop Project for my Great-Grandson and I.

Thanks for sharing
