Old shelving from one pal.
A plan borrowed from another.
And bang, some nice collapsible beach or back yard chairs !
They are lightweight.
They nest for compact storage.
They are super comfortable.

Oak, with linseed oil and polyurethane finish.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Nothing like a comfortable place to rest a spell! I guess the saying goes .. “One mans trash is another mans treasure”. You did well with that project Woodwrecker! Great looking chairs!

Very nice indeed. Nothing better than making something new from something being thrown out.

The one who reclaims most wood before he dies wins! Great chairs, impressive indeed!
