Great chair!! I’ve made a couple myself. The rounded over ends are a great idea! I’ve got to use that on my next one.

I really want to make a few of these for our patio but can’t find the pattern anywhere. Can you post a link to the site for the pattern or give me some dimensions? Any info is greatly appreciated.

How did you clamp the ends of the wires? It looks very clean.

I made one of these and used 1/4” all-thread with acorn nuts on the ends to made then safer and better looking. I couldn’t get the wire thing going right in my mind but all-thread is cheap so why not. I believe I used 3-36” sticks. I had a couple of 12 pieces left over when I finished. If I were doing it again I would probably change the ends of the pieces to something like this.

Thanks for posting the web sight so I could get a lay out and watch the video. I also liked the pop up stick chair in the video it was so amazing how it folds into a chair. I hope to make a stick chair soon . I will round off all the edges on mine with my router though. Yours looks nice.

It looks good and comfy. Like the rounded ends, very well crafted. I’m sure it will serve you well.

Have your say...
