we was asked ( naturally crafty a joint venture with a dear friend ) by a lady for a set of simple chairs for er grand children..she liked them for the simple design and low cost…total cost to her £22
a template was made and with the use of a bottom bearing cutter on the router table the chairs were produced fairly quickly…a few biscuits and screws and a dab of glue they were completed and delivered asap…
1st picture is fitted with all braces and backs…2nd. with out braces..the braces were needed due to only being 18mm wbp ply

sometimes, simple is best

Wow you’ve been busy, good looking chairs at a more than fair price.

You can’t get much more simple than that. What a great design. You could pump those out as a kit if you so desired. Who knows where that could lead.

Awesome! I need a chair. I fell through the fold-up fabric and pipe frame chair that I use in my shop tonight. And no, I’m not overweight. Lol. Still wear the same waist size as I did in high school 25 years ago!

But I digress. With your leave I would like to use your patern to make myself a shop chair.
