I saw this design on the web for a folding chair and wanted to build one. So after some figuring and some jigsaw work, I had one, lol. It’s made from 1” AB plywood. Its a great lounging chair, just sit back and relax.

How ‘bout sharing some dimensions when you get a minute or two, overall height/length, seat size and floor up to pivot points etc.?

into my todo list… it has 2 pivot points, isn’t it? what did you use for that? I’m a novice so any help on the construction experience will help… measures?

I’m glad you all like the chair. I regret to inform you that I do not have any dimensions or plans for it. I simply saw the picture online and copied it. i justed used a straight edge and a jig saw. I would measure it up but I already gave it away, sorry. I used some 10” long 7/16” bolt that we had lying around for the pivot points.
