Re Simple Garden Chair Project
I made two of these 'simple garden chairs' last summer and find them to be a good sturdy design, and a fun project to build.
I especially like the support structure of the frame, the way the legs, seat and back go together.
I cut a hand-hold into the top back slat, partly functional, mostly decorative.
However I found that the design of the back is a little uncomfortable, and I may take the backs apart for modifications.
I plan to curve the leading edge of the back support, so the bottom slat doesn't dig into the sitter's back quite so much.
Perhaps work out a way to attach the armrests to the outside frame of the back also, enabling lower slats.
Other than that, I like the chairs really well.
I built them out of locally milled white spruce and they grace our home-built screenhouse in the woods just off our yard where we sleep in summer.
I plan to build a garden bench with the same design, modifying the back and arms as described.
Thank you for this wonderful chair plan,
Kt in Ak
