Made from Afromosia, these deck chairs use friction to hold them together. The seat part slides out for easy storage. The legs were laminated together with thin strips and expoxied. Next time I’ll make the legs a little thicker…they have a little bounce to them. There is a matching table…pic coming soon!

Great looking chairs, I think a little bounce would be good. Care to share the dimensions?

Very nice job, what is the cross section of the legs at the moment and what would you beef them up to?

Sorry no plans, it was trial and error until I felt they felt right. The chair is about 20”’s wide, 36” tall, the tip of the seat is about 13” off the ground. Currently the cross section of the legs is 1’ wide by 1.5 deep. I would make them about 1.5 wide and 1.5 deep for more support and probably widen the chair up to 30” if possible. Thanks for all the comments.
