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.

Very cool. Looks like they lay flat.
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.
