I love this little chair. Where did you get the plans for it? Or did you just make it up?

Here is a camp chair I built about 5 years ago. I’ve built around 40 so far, but not as nice as Bill’s. I used construction grade lumber. Here, it’s shown open and closed. I sold them for $30 a piece. If I used Cypress, I would have to charge more.

Dewayne They really don’t fold the seat part pulls apart from the back and slides into the back of the chair and is flat.
If you take a look at MrRon’s picture he posted here on my projects you will see how flat they are together
Thanks for looking at my projects.
