This is a folding Kentucky stick chair, its a very comfortable one . i sat in it and im right at 280 lbs.and it felt pretty sturdy ,and folds up .would be great for camping and craw fish boils .its a real easy built . i had some cut off from a bench i made a while ago and used them had to buy some fenc staples but other than that its mostly scrap pine. going to coat it with some finish when i get a gun ,got one from HF ordered it should be here soon.heres the plans for it and their instructions are very well written.

This is very cool eddie – so you run wire through all the parts and staple the ends? I could use some of these…...thanks!

Interesting design. Amazes me that someone sat down and figured this out. Given that handful of ‘sticks’, I don’t think I could visualize the end result. And you did a good job building it!

Great job eddie, I like these fun, inexpensive, yet practical projects. I also like the fact that you used pine, an often maligned wood. Here in Northern Idaho we have plenty of it just waiting for projects like yours. Thanks for the link.
