I'll be adding to this collection as time goes on.
There are also a few furniture tricks scattered among my Fifty Handy Tricks
Furniture that interests me is usually what Wade Tarzia would call Nomad Furniture
Step 1: African Two-Board Folding Chair
They're really comfortable, look great, and last forever.
This one is unusually small for the type, but is plenty comfortable.
As you can see from the drawing (picture 4) both boards are 12" wide and 3 feet long.
The slot is 11" from the bottom of the backboard.
The narrow part of the seat board is 4.25" wide.

Step 2: Instant Cardboard Box Chair and Footstool
Perfect for warm and cold environments, nice on the skin, just breatheable enough.
This box had some wadded paper packing materials in it that gave it just the right amount of cushioning. I lounged in this chair in utter comfort and watched five episodes of "Battlestar Galactica" with the Instructables gang.
Notice my comfy stylish hat and scarf made from an airline blanket.
If you crush the box the right way you get nice armrests also.
Here's how quick it is to custom-fit it to your body:
Step 3: Milk Crate Bookshelves
The only problem is they may slump over time and collapse.
A friend of mine has his walls lined with these, and each time I see them they're leaning just a little more. I haven't heard from him in a while, perhaps he's trapped under a pile of books.
