Saw this project on you tube and went to the guys site, http://woodworkingtrip.blogspot.com/2012/09/how-to-build-folding-stick-chair.html and followed the material list and video. I think I will modify it a bit next time like round off some of the edges to make it more appealing. I do recommend ensuring you have a tool to cut the wire, mine wasn’t sufficient and not to happy with the claps exposed. But a fun project nonetheless.

Nice work, I am thinking about making a couple of these. How comfortable are they to sit in?

Thx…surprising enough they were comfy. I just wish there was another way to secure the wire. I am thinking of coming up with a wood covering of sorts.

I wonder where this design originally came from—it’s a great functional novelty. Your cables may be too short now, but on mine I just folded the cable in and used two 3/4” fence staples to pin down each end—it’s a lot lower profile than cable clamps. I’ve seen a reference to actually tapping threads onto the ends of the cable and screwing acorn nuts on. That’d look great if it can hold tightly enough.

Regular wire cutters will mangle the heck out of the cable ends. I didn’t have a pair of cable shears, so I wrapped it in masking tape and sliced through the middle with a cut-off tool (a dremel would probably work fine). Takes a little longer, but you get a nice clean edge.

Great chair.
When I built mine I used 1/4” all-thread and lock nuts instead of wire and staples. I also recessed the nut into the side of the seat.

Nice Chair! Judging by the name tapes on the door behind you I assume you are former (or current?) Airforce? The irony of you building a chair is not lost on me in that case lol.. ;-)

I like the idea of the threading…I will have to looke for it at the big box store. And airframes, nice! Lol
