First off I want to thank gfadvm for sharing his folding chair design.
This is made from old maple rough cut timbers (3”x4”x83”) used for loading steel on a flatbed trailer for shipping so there was alot of resawing and working around checks and knots but I think it turned out pretty good.
I did make a few modifications from the original that I worked out on a prototype before building the final version – 1- I added a radius to the back support so it felt better on the back when sitting 2- added a radius to the rear part of the seat – again for comfort 3- rounded the ends of the legs so not to have to fight with angles 4- increased the angle of the back (I like a chair that reclines a bit more) 5- added a larger foot rest
I have taken it to several youth soccer matches and there has been a great amount of interest in having some built although at this point I haven’t gotten any orderss
Thanks again gfadvm
