Updated and Revised September 2019
This chair is a classic take of a director’s chair. If you embroider your logo on the backrest it will distinguish you from other members and show your pride in belonging to that particular kingdom. Although not shown here you will want to round over or smooth all edges for that nice comfy feel.
A picture of this folding chair was sent by one of the members as an idea for another project.
Although it looks complicated there are really only four major components to the chair. These parts are then cloned to produce the final project.
The toughest portion of this build is the long sweeping curves on the leg. However I have provided a template that you can make a full size pattern from which should simplify the process.
The template and detail drawings will give you the positioning for the dowel holes and the location of the tenons on each end.
As shown on the next page of the plan when folded the chair will
measure approximately 18 ½” x 27” x 56”. If you find a way to make the main pivot knob and dowel removable the chair will definitely create a smaller footprint for travel.
If you don’t have a method to make the large pivot knob, I’m sure you could find a rosette molding piece at the hardware store that would do the job nicely.
