I built a camp chair from plans on HENNINGS SCOUTERS’ PAGES but found the curved back uncomfortable so I modified the frame to have a straight back. As shown in pic 5 it still nest compactly.
I apologize in advance for the crudeness of my sketch, I mocked up this chair with card board and don’t have a plan. Other than the side I loosely copied the Hennings plan. After settling on the shape listed I decided where to place the side to side braces by holding the cardboard sides together with clothespins and determining a seat height and seatback angle I liked. Than I shaped the ends so the legs are flat to the ground. You can also just put a radius on the bottom of the legs if you like. I cut the front of the seat base so the front slat is angled slightly down for comfort. This chair is built with 1×6 pt pine ( 3/4” x 5 1/2” )
