Topic tags/keywords: chair folding chair director chair

Hello everyone. I’m new to the page and looking forward to learning from everyone. I’m on a mission to find a patter for this tall wooden folding director chair. It’s important that the back of chair looks like this and not your typical Adirondack back. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, David!

I can’t help, but I have seen some similar designed for lifeguards, so that may open up some search options.

Chair plans are few and far between except for the mission style.

That doesn’t look very complicated though. If you obsess about it enough I think you’ll be able to get to the point where you can draw it out and build it from there.

Do you have access to this particular chair? If so, then that’s your pattern.
Or if you know where it is, maybe you could measure it—or have someone measure it for you.

Even if it isn’t available. Looking at the lines, and extrapolating to a size chair you know that fits you, is the better way.

If you build solely from a plan, more often than not you will find the person who did the plan, and you don’t sit the same chair, often miles apart.

Check Rockler, currently they have a feature on Adirondac, and deck chair styles, many different plans/styles in their latest catalog if you really need a plan. I would think that one is a deck chair.

The only way I have access to the chair is to purchase and have it shipped in pieces. $200! I could probably figure it out but I really don’t have time to do that.

Thanks for the suggestion. I looked on their site but to no avail. This chair is a “standard” for the purpose I need it for. They are for horse show awards. Thanks

Correct. It looks more like a lifeguard chair. I just need the back to be exactly like this and it be able to fold. Scratching my head that I can’t find a plan anywhere for this!
