Hello everyone.
Long ago I made a rustic benches of a model that takes internet. I like both the comfort, I made a small set of living with the same design.
Originally the idea was to create a stool to use when you go camping. But as I did the first of algarrobo, and its weight (perhaps 8 kg) is difficult to transport, so I served to it.
It occurred to me the idea of ​​getting some boards of Kiri, just are not wide enough to use one and I had to join two of them for backup, also to be more softwood, design differently seat so the strength to sit does not departed the table.
Is satisfied with the design, strength and also the weight that just would come to 4 kg.
It all off, try going to take fishing!
A fun and useful project. Ideal for use cuts.
If someone wants the measures they with taste send.
I weigh 87 kg, and my height is 1.95 meters. To get an idea of ​​size.
Thanks for looking and I appreciate any comments and suggestions.
Greetings.

It looks very comfortable for sitting by the river bank.

Simple, but very effective design. It looks plenty strong enough too. My only “concern” is the cleats across the back (the ones that support the legs/seat). Do they allow for seasonal movement of the back ?

PS. That’s a nice table the chair is sitting on !
