I made this super awesome deck chair quite a few years ago, ...I guess the promise of warmer temperatures has me thinking of building a few updated versions I suppose.

The cool thing about the brown chair as you might notice from the picture, is that there is a pull out foot rest and the rest itself is hinged to meet the angles that are comfortable to your legs. The design was borrowed from a vintage antique chair that I came across. When not in use it folds and slides back into the chair. A bonus feature was discovered when we realized that the pulled out foot rest also acts a great spot to sit your plate of bbq while you sit back and relax.

The next chair was one I made from barnboard, always did like that material. As for the last picture, well, just waiting for the guests to arrive to fill up those chairs and bring the cold beverages. ; )

So where’s the trick?

Oh wait, I know. The person who gets the brown chair has to flip it over, pull the left leg out 1/64” and then lower the center seat board by 2”. Then he needs to set the chair upright and stand on one foot and while singing the National Anthem, he has to move the right arm to the left 2.278”

THEN he gets to sit and the chair wont collapse!

(nice chairs by the way)
