Step 7: Even more strapping! The rapture!

Cut two 46" lengths of fabric.

Take your plastic melter and sear the ends so that they don't unravel.

Fold each end in 5" and tape them in place so that they don't move.

Both straps should now be an identical 36" long.
Not being funny---great to wear on back in Mt lion country. <br>would have saved some peeps thaf got attacked. <br>also would cut down on injuries !!!! <br>GREAT
wow it is wonderfull.
For those times when you don't have even this chair, but your back is killing you after rucking all day, two people sitting back to back works great.
That looks easy and WAY practical!
Hey you look like my double, okay i have shorter hair, but ... I seen your picture and thought it was me. BTW: nice t-shirt.
You can't really do the last step. There is no part on earth that is free from noise caused by human made technology.
Really???????? Does that mean you have SUPERPOWER hearing?! ROFLMAO!<br><br>There are plenty of places, that are quiet, peaceful and tranquil,...................... though there will ALWAYS be litter......
it never fails to amaze me how many dead helium balloons i find on mountaintops.
He found a place.<br />
im sorry, but if you cant find your space, thats too bad for you!
You ought to get out more. Or, at least, farther. And I don't necessarily mean physically.
This reminds me a bit of my Crazy Creek chair from Philmont. I like how it is a lot sturdier though, I may build one of these for summer camp.
how did you make that? that must have been a pain to carry for 10 days if it wasnt all that light
Whenever you're stuffing something that's to be used for camping/outdoors, think about using some old clothes you'd otherwise throw out/donate (or not nice enough to donate) so that in a pinch you can have a spare shirt that's dryer or cleaner (if the thing is built right) or warmer than you started with, should any adventures pop up.
I wonder if an old back pack could be re-purposed for something like this too .
What a good design, Randy!
One can usually buy old poly fill pillows at thrift stores which are usually under $5 and find fabric there as well. I often find large canvas scraps and heavy duty upholstery fabrics as well as luggage straps - old luggage can be disassemble for the straps and the wheels. Just grap em when you see them and create a parts shelf.
now all you need is a 50 cal and you'll be a true camper lol also where do you get canvas (like the craft store) how much $?
I prefer to be in the outdoors without the firearms. Any craft store or discount fabric center should have it. It shouldn't cost any more than $6 a yard.
You can find it at Wal-Mart as well (generally for cheaper).&nbsp; Canvas and cotton duck are the same thing.&nbsp; Just look at the heavy-duty stuff.<br />
&nbsp;U look like Shawn White!
tires make excellent chairs
Where is that that shot of you taken?
North end of San Francisco. It's amazingly sparse up there.
This chair would be great for stadium seating, like when I spend hours at my sons' swim meets.
You mean 46" of strapping, not fabric... right?
you could leave the foam out alltogether and just pu a few strips of wood or metal, the it could fold up and would work for hicking too.
love your idea or you could put a tad bit of foam over the wood and then its more comfortable
i have an old broken camp chair, maybe i can make this into a raised chair, thanks for the idea
Nice job, I like your Instructables Robot T-Shirt.
Your chair made my day! This will be great for kayaking.
Nice job, Randofo!
