Kentucky Stick Folding Chair
Many have done this chair, but I liked the style of it and how it looks especially in a garden or in nature.
At the end I did found out that it is comfortable to sit on also.
Made this one out of reclaimed switish pine wood which I first treated for fangus etc. to protect it from weather and finished it with several coats of UV clear varnish as I wanted to keep its natural wood look.
Thanks for watching

Nice work on the chair. I agree, it looks cool around the garden. You should get many years out of it.

Good to hear that it's also comfortable to sit in.

Thanks for sharing.

I bet it's a challenge to make such construction, it would be fun to try. It looks comfortable too, as you already tried. I like that natural wood look also. It doesn't seem too complicated to make- maybe I'm wrong.

Folding Up
I forgot to take a photo of the chair folded so I borrow one from the net to give you an idea (I guess you already know) how it looks folded up :)

Thank you klaus… No I have no idea who originally design this stick chair. I did Google it but I had no luck on that.

Thank you Charles, there's something in this design that it challenged me to build one.
