This is another chair I made here in Afghanistan. This one is of my own design after studying some interlocking plywood furniture pics. I sketched the whole thing in Google Sketchup. Its built from 1”AB plywood. there is a set of “ratcheting arms” in the back that allow the back rest to adjust. Also there is a wedge shape cut out on the back “leg” to allow for the whole unit to lean back slightly.

Nice chair. If you can find a way to make one that folds, you might be able to get them in your ISU 70’s or 90’s.
