Built this set for a friend. Had a basic idea of what he wanted and found some picks on the net. But no plans so I had to wing it. The curve of the legs is 80” and I made it out of cypress with a clear spar finish. I did the kids names with a dremel and painted black before finish. I routed all the edges it a roundover for comfort and sanded to 220 before finish.

Very nice. I like how the chair seat stores inside the back rest.

I love these, but I must be slow – how do they work? Are the back and seat two separate pieces, or is there some kind of hidden hinge?

These look real nice and look like they would be great for the beach.

Thanks guys for the comments. The back and the seat are two separate parts. The legs on the seat slide between the legs on the back. And there are cross braces that hold them in place.

For winging it, that’s a fantastic job.

I have a plan for these in one of my woodworking books. I came really close to making these for a benefit auction, but decided to repurpose a headboard/foot board into a bench thinking it would be quicker…ha, stripping and repainting turned out to be very time consuming lol. These look great! Makes me really want to make some now!

So many people have asked I guess I need to draw some plans up. I used cypress & planned to size but here is the basic info to build the Adult chair like I said before the arc I used is a 80” radius 46” long on the back legs and 33” long for the seat legs. So you can cut all four out of one 2×8x8’ board (1.5×2.5 inches). The slats are 2.5” wide by 18.5” long and 3/4” thick. You can get all of those from one 1×6x12’. As for the seat height mine are set at about 18” but when you have the legs cut you can set it for you just by putting the braces to your setting so the seat legs can slide in and out.
