Made these a few years back. Built the first one as a birthday present for myself. My wife bought me the wood and my neighbor gave me a table saw. Have made and sold several since then.

I like the contrasting wide arms and the narrow back slats.

Very cool. Do you have pictures of how the mechanism works?

I made a set that looks the same as this one back in 11-9-2014 and posted in lumberjocks. The plans came from Veritas Tools Inc., Item 05L05.40 (full sized plans) at a cost of about $25. My project described the mounting of the back into the base and I mentioned the secure fit necessary to make the back secure. A friend of mine (Since passed) was a surveyor and had a printer that could produce 3’X4’ copies. He made some full sized plans from mine so I could cut the forms out by tracing the copy or making inserts where necessary. That way I did not destroy my bought and paid for plans. My grand kids still have the five piece set – as I made a matching table shortly thereafter. I was offered $400 for the set before I gave it to the grand kids. I liked the build, was pleased with the results and the quality of the plans. Spot on following the plans will produce a solid back mounting. [email protected] is the email address if you have questions.
