One and half years ago…
When I saw a movie, I thought suddenly it would be more comfortable if I had a rounge chair like this.
And decided to make it.
The original plan was to use leather strips instead of Linen strips, but I couldn’t buy just like what I wanted.
And this is the first project using my vintage stanley #51.
Why don’t you make this for you?
You’ve got one already? ^^

Thanks for reading, see you…

Materials : Ash, Linen
Finish : Baby Oil
Tools : Drill, Handsaw, Spokeshave, Chisel, Sandpaper, Scissors (for Linen)

That’s a cool chair! How did you secure the linen strips to the frame? Is the linen a single thickness, or is it folded and sewn? Just curious. Nice work!

Oh, I’m a man. I just tied strips behind back.
and it was a single thickness
I never like to use a niddle. (:
Actually, If I could buy some proper leather for it, I want to make this one more time.
It will be cool to use some rivets for securing leather strips.

Thanks, Robb. See you again (:

Airjack,

This is a very unique and unusual chair. It looks like it would be comfortable too. To tell the truth I think that the linen would be better for the seat and back than leather.

Thanks for the post.

Is the toilet tissue on top of the TV for when you cry during “chick flicks” LOL.
Nice project! Is the chair comfortable? Well done, and with very few tools.

Interesting design. I have not seen such a short chair before. It does look like it might be comfortable.

Hi, thank you all for the nice words. ^^

and… Hi, Brian!
In case of summer, yes. I can agree with you. but I used to lay a blanket over this in winter.
unless… It would be too cold.

Interesting design. Good work. I am not sure I’d be able to get up out of it.

Looks to be a comfortable chair with the linen ( or can be with leather also). I would like to copy it.
Can the back take the load of a heavy person?

Thank you. :)

Sharad ... Yes. I am sure that the back won’t be broken by normal using.
I used through tenons.
The tenon has 80mm-width and 120mm-length.
and I reinforced it by square peg.
for your information, I weigh 188 pounds.
I think, according as How heavy the user is,
You’lll be able to adjust the size of tenon, the angle between back and seat, and the length of back.
