An old story as inspiration for a 21st century woodwork project. Well, the story got a bit out of content, but hey, it’s all about woodworking isn’t it. A Medieval children’s folding chair, which is also our entry for the 3rd Annual Summers Woodworking creative 2×4 contest. So it’s made out leftover pieces of pine that combined together have the size of a 2×4, no nails, no screws, a bit of water based stain and a pound of CePe dark antique wax. The only “fake” material are the 8 mm steel rods instead of wooden ones (but these aren’t visible).

The making of (and some video recordings of the garden at Convento do Cristo (the almost 1000 year old former headquarters of the Templar Knights) at the link:

Wow, very nice. Great carvings, beautifully crafted and finish. Fits in very well with the historic story & setting. Its a winner in my opinion. Good luck with the contest.

Great video too, have to watch it several times to view the story, then the build. Very enjoyable.
