My spouse found a picture of a chair like this about 15 years ago. I extrapolated the dimensions from the picture and because I could not see how the seat hooked to the rails I developed my own design. I reinforced the wood hooks with a metal plate to prevent any breaking of the end grain. (see picture 2) They are all made from oak with an oil and wax finish so they could be easily refinished with some steel wool and more oil/wax finish. We have not seen any chairs like this since she clipped the picture from a magazine. I have searched the internet without results. I have made about 15 for family and friends. The first one was recently retired after some hard use by our 12 year old grandaughter.
