Great idea, recreating a chair allows something that worked once to come back, with work but without the fuss of hoping some new design will be comfortable as the original one.

Thanks ya all, I couldn’t find a pattern I wanted, so I just copied the old one, I have a gator table in front of it, my son and I wait for bus in it every morning we can when school in session, or I watch him play in the dirt while I swing and play on my iPad;) I would like to think I have a little skill making things, or I wasted a lot of money on tools and time on how to videos. Lol
