Folding chair. I had no milled timber so I made it out of sticks

Folds okay, surprisingly comfortable and solid. But I find myself reaching out for a beer so I may have to make a matching sidetable

SD…. That looks cool!. There are places that sell that stuff for high dollar prices calling it “Folk Art”!

I like it! :) Besides a side table, you also need a matching foot rest. That is, if there are enough branches available.

Are those half blind dovetails I see there? Remarkable. Don’t let my dog near it, he might fetch you a beer after he chews it to pieces. Also, I will think you’re low enough that the entire ground is your side table. Seriously, real fun and very nicely done.

Cant get any more natural than that, very intuitive.
