As I had made a drink holder for the patio set; my Grand-son-in-law,Tim Cruz, suggested that I also make plate/snack holder for the same chairs.

Made from scrap fence cedar, pictures are the result1

I even drilled slots for the necessary hardware. Table knife did not work, but steak knife worked well.

The dimensions have to vary to the different types of chairs.

Trial & error were the design origin!

Nice custom job, rjR! Looks like it easily slides on and off and would be usable on either chair arm. Thanks for sharing.
