As I mentioned, I work in a shop that the owner has me making various projects from cypress. The owner has a lumber yard and I build furniture for him to sell. This chair was designed to fold down and get boxed for shipping.

Every woodworker builds at least one of these at least once. In my case I build these every week. They get boring after awhile.

These are made of 5/4 cypress for the framing and 1×2s for the seat and back with 2-1×4s in the back as well. 21”wide for the BIG in the Seat people, I have changed the design to be comfortable and a little higher for older folks to get out of. I have also designed this to come apart and fit into a shipping box.

Repetitive work drives me insane, i could see how building the same chair every week could get boring real fast. Although, everyone builds stuff for someone else hopefully you will build for yourself soon. Its a nice chair.

Great job on these, I like the higher chairs also just because I am 6’4” and getting up out of these can be a challenge at time

-- Norman - I never never make a mistake, I just change the design.

Nice to see your work
I really like that chairs

Shipping is the big problem to my chairs too
The way to come apart you used is nice but my model have curved back.. I need to think more!
Maybe it is better if they can fold but I never tried to make one

Have your say...
