Cajun, I looked everywhere for a working plan, could not find one, so I printed up that pic with the dimensions and scaled it, best I I can remember, 5 angle on the seat, back was 11 I think, most horizontal cross supports were 1 1/2 or 1 3/4”, all of the chair was 3/4” stock, made mine out of white oak for the weather. I posted pics here, cant remember how to search for it, will play around for that, camera is at home too.

This helps tremendously. Going to give it a go. Did u angle the bottom of the back legs like the picture? Would it be a terrible inconvenienance to post a side and back picture of your chair?

The back legs are angled back I dont remember the degree but the original dimension if you looked at is was 30 1/2 inches at the very bottom, I did 28” if I remember right and i made the back a pieces a bit shorter. I am not at home where my plans/drawings/chair is at, out of there caring for my mother, I will be back there 12/5 and can get all that to you. I do know the foot rest is about 6” and I would make it about 8 or just extend the supports out 2-3” further. Actually I have most of the lumber for another one I was going to build this summer when my VERY healthy , mentally sharp, driving and independent living mom, of 95 years got a UTI and then lung infection in Aug and spent most of it in the hospital, then Sept in rehap, now back home and just 5% below living by herself, so I am it , here, no facility for her as long as I can do it but semi bored to death. Poop, $300 a day to sit in a room being ignored, with a TV and lousy meals., no way as long as I can stand it.

Thank u for the reply! If u get a chance when u get back would love the pictures. Hope your mother is feeling better. I hope my daughters can say their dad is in his 90’s! I will be tied up in December helping my lovely wife. She is getting two knees replaced on December 2nd. After getting back from surgery, I will be ready to get back in the shop!

Good luck with the wife, my dad needed one in his 60s and never did it, died 3 years ago at 91, but had no quality of life from his mid 80s on because he did not, as I told him “it aint going to get any better or easier”
Mom is feeling great, but a bit depressed at times taken such a fast slow down. Heck in May I would have put her up against the average 75 year old mentally and physically, and she would have come out on top in the first round. She is like a Timex watch as the commercial said, “they can take a licking and they just keep on ticking”
Thanks for your concerns.
