This is a chair born out of necessity. Well, not really. It just sounded cool. It is quite comfortable though. In fact, I am sitting in it now. But I digress. I got all of the wood I used from the Sears store in my city. So the only things I bought were the two bolts and nuts. Overall, this project cost me 20 cents. Not bad.. It folds too for easy storage.
Step 1: Materials & Tools
You will need:
4-40" 1x1.75 Boards
2-78" .75x3.5 Boards
I know these are strange messurements, but I did get these boards from pallets. You can use many different sized boards but these worked well for me.
Step 2: Cut the Supports
Cut two of the 40" boards down to 32"
Step 3: Mark the Angles
Lay out your your boards to the angle that you will want your chair to be at. Mark the angle; you will need it later. Lay a board across the bottom. This will help the find the angle that your chair will set at.
MAKE SURE THE 40" ONE IS ON THE OUTSIDE OF EACH SIDE!
Step 4: Cut the Foot Angles
One of the feet happend to be 45 degrees, which was nice. The other one was tricky because the angle was greater than the saw could do. So I propped it up with a two by four and braced it with a wedge of wood and pushed on the propped up part. Next lay the newly cut wood up against another board to make sure the angles match up.
Mark the center by connecting the corners of the x. Drill a 1/4 hole at the mark. Countersink so the bolt is flush..
