Has anyone seen the plans for the deck chair on the cover of Klingspor's 2013 catalog?

I’ve sent them an email but was hoping someone had an answer.
I consider this site to be the very best.
Thanks.

Sad news on Klingspor’s woodworking shop catalog #143 with great deck chair.
The photo came from a stock photo company and was acquired by the art studio that prepares their catalog.
They have no name of builder and won’t give us the phone number of the art studio or stock photo company.
They were good enough to admit they had received numerous calls and emails.

I don’t think we are any closer to the builder or a Plansnow type service.
I’m pretty sure the photographer is not a woodworker. He used a stock photo service.
I’m not giving up, just trying to think of a woodworking plan supplier and how to search.
At this point I don’t care how much the plans are.
Thanks for the help, but don’t stop looking.
I like your quote.
Good web site and furniture.

Well, well
Go to Lowe’s online site and type in this

Southern Enterprises Teak Patio Chair
Item #: 435101 | Model #: CR5604

Actually carried by numerous businesses.
Don’t see a foot stool but I’m sure it will show up.
Probably cheaper than building it.

Shouldn’t be that hard to draw up your own plans since you have a working picture in front of you. Just have to decide how you want to assemble it. I’m guessing the back and the legs are all bent lamination to hold that curve and stay strong although a steam bent set up would work as well if you start with wet, non kiln dried wood. Quicksilver’s pic does show a joint where the seat back and the seat come together but it is definitely a cruder rip off. I’d start by assuming a slat is 3” wide which makes the back roughly 30” tall and the seat starting at the curve 18” long, doesn’t seem too out of proportion. Take a ruler, measure a slat width, how many widths are in a slat length and you have width. Do the same for height from the floor to the top of the seat. Legs appear to be as long as the seat, you’ll just have to make up your own lean back for the seat back. Just don’t forget the two cross pieces in the legs that are hard to see. You might not get the exact same but you can develop something close and it will be yours.

I don’t think I’ll get to see one of these in Lowe’s.
Online only, maybe.
Wonder if they will let me roll it over on some butcher paper?

Here is a nifty little program called BigPrint which makes it easy to make multi-page scale-accurate printouts comprised of individual sheets printed on ordinary ink jet or laser printers from images. Have used it several times and work quite well.

Can’t really tell from the original shot if it uses a layup of bent laminations but could be. More than likely steam bending.

Looks like a good winter project for this year.

There’s an ottoman, cover, and pad, but not the same ottoman.
Maybe a more comfortable ottoman shape, though.
