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!

Cool idea and getting them to fit the chairs you have. I’ll take 4. LOL.

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