Ok folks it is done I took my mac up design and made a chair. I have to thanks Robert Triplett for teaming up with me and buying the wood for the project. I did have to make a few changes so the chair would be strong and there is one other thing I am going to change on the next chair but this chair is not only strong but sturdy. I have not put a finish on it yet just finished building it today. Being that it folds it will help when the weather changes and a customer wants to store it away or take it on a camping trip. Ok its your turn for questions or comments.
Thanks Dennis

Very nicely done. I believe you will have a market for them. People like to relax.

One of the nicest Andirondack chairs I’ve seen and folds up to boot! Great work.

Nicely done. Ironically, I have a cheap version of this style I bought from Ace Hardware. Nothing nearly as nice as yours… but I was going to use the one I bought for a pattern to “upscale” it. Features I like are the curved back, nice sized arms, rounded front seat edge and folding function. One lessoned learned… I think I would paint before I assembled.

Again, well done…
