This wooden chair is patterned on the portable Roorkhee chair used by British Field Officers from the 1880’s thru WWI. Some adaptation from the Safari chair form the 1930’s. I made the frame of rock maple, legs turned and drilled with conical mortise holes, and struts from dowel material. I cut the strut tenons on a table saw jig and sanded them to fit. They are not fastened in the mortise holes, only jam fit and held by the seated occupant so they can be knocked apart to transport the chair. Finish is a rosewood dye and then several coats of polyurethane.
