Finally completed this chair after telling the wife id do it over a year ago. Made from poplar and painted with a black chalk paint – black paint, plaster of Paris, and water. We wanted a rough finish as this will be utility furniture.
For anyone wanting to make this chair, draw it out first then use the full size drawings. With the moving parts and to prevent wobbling in either position, this helps a lot. Regardless, popular mechanics suggests this is an “easy” project. While it was my first chair, it was quite complex.
Below are the free plans I followed. Also there are several jocks that have completed this project with a lot more success.
