Here are a couple of chairs I made a while back. They’re made of cypress. I stole the idea for the folding mechanism from somewhere on the internet. My more recent attempts (not pictured) eliminate the pegs, which are a problem to make without a lathe (I made these from 2 different sizes of oak dowel glued together, but the glued surface is not big enough for the stress the pegs take, and once they get a little weather they can get stuck pretty good.) I’ll put up pics of the next gen once I get it working right. Also working on a (nonfolding) settee.
