I delivered a play house and the owner had a chair similar to this that was in need of repair. I repaired the chair and made two new ones for me. I love the tambor styled seat that forms itself to the body. I used bicycle cable and threaded it through each slat. The first one I fitted, the fixing failed and as early as last night, one of the kids fell through it. The second has screw locks that hold perfectly.

Would really like some plans.

I like the chair and the ability for it to contour to your body. I bet it is comfortable. Nice idea with the bike braking cable.
