I have been doing research on these chairs now for about 5 months. Last year I had several people ask if I made them or new someone that did. After looking at many different ways to make them and seeing many diferent chairs elsewhere and on this site I came up with my own pattern with alittle of this and a little of that. Taking things I liked and modifing it to work the way I wanted it to work I came up with this moc up. I had to change a few things after I made it to make it to fold right so this is why you see differnt pictures. Although I am sure someone somewhere makes the same idea. I have two different backs for the chair but I am only showing one, the one I call the King Back Chair. The one thing I did not like about all the chairs I have seen so far on this site and I know I have not seen them all but the are solid chairs and do not fold up. To me that is a big problem. Mine will be just as strong and it will fold. Why some may ask its simple if you plan to take them somewhere to sell them like shows you better have a big trailer to haul them around the other is if you do sell a few how is the customer going to get them home if they drive a car and lives out of town????? So I designed mine to fold up, easier to ship easier to haul and sell. When there is bad weather they can be stored with a smaller space. Someone say last night on a Blog. I hate to rain on your parade but there is 50,000 others making them. My answer to him is so what how many people are making what you make? I dont care what you are making someone esle is also making it just with a different artisons look. If we worried about how many people make what we make we should just hang it up. We do it because we love what we do and hope to make alittle money doing it. I really want to thank everyone that has supported Laura and I on this site and hope what ever you do you have success with it.
