This build was fun. Easy materials to purchase and very comfortable too!! Also the fact that it is foldable is awesome.

I have some wood just waiting for one of these chairs. Thanks for reminding me. I sat in one last summer and also thought it was comfortable.

Great looking chairs! I’ve had a stack of wood set aside to make some of these for months. Hoping to get time to do it once the wedding is over.

Great looking chair, but my first reaction was how does it hold up? I have a fat butt and I am not sure I could sit in that. HEHE.

Thanks!! I cant take credit because I saw the plans online. I made a change or two but you can find how to build one just search for kentucky stick chair on either google or there are some videos on youtube. I just bought the materials to make another one but this time instead of using U wire clips and galvanized wire, Im going to use threaded rod, locknuts, and washers. I think this could make it a little sturdier. Hope you guys make one and enjoy!!
danoaz: Im about 275 and this holds me up just fine. No worries!
