This is a project that I saw on a TV woodworking show and thought – hey, I can make one of those. This chair is made of cypress and finished with a light stain.

Those are really Neat. Where could one find either plans or measurements for sides?

My wife has been wanting me to make some of these. A few years ago I think the plans were in Wood Magazine, but I have piles of magazines to dig through to find them.

You did a great job, it’s a nice looking chair.

Yep, those are nice looking chairs. They don’t take up much space.

Here is a folding chair design I did around 3 years ago.
I made about 30 of them for friends and for sale. I used common lumber, curved pieces c/f 2×8’s and slats from 1×2’s.
