    Where did the Instructible go? Did the author remove it? All I see are the comments.

    Any one have a picture of the chair folded?

    These Chairs are great! I have a couple made out of oak that I love. The one difference though that you might try is that instead of all-thread I used rope passed through the holes and a large knot tied on either end. I like this because it allows it to flex a bit and curve to the shape of your backside. It also gives it a bit of flex which helps it fold flatter.

    Great instructable! I've been looking for plans on how to make a new one. I just used scrap lumber left over from jobsites, and tension wire from chain link fencing. I really like the foot stool/table idea! Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for design have been looking for it for a while, friend has one just didn't know where he got it. On his chair the four longer leg pieces were 1x2 instead of 1x1, I don't know if it increased weight limit, but i used it and I am 250lbs, and you barely notice because excess sticks out on back and bottom.

    I agree ! The 1 x 2 is better for the legs if you want better weight limits. Thanks for your positive input!

    Awesome chair, thank you for the idea and instructions. Unfortunately one of the problems I am having is the vague instructions and unclear pictures. Drilling of the holes on the wood pieces are not simply drilled 1 inch from the end on all. The pictures even show that the holes seem to be in different locations on the back, connector and seat pieces. I am having to go back and make adjustments. Regardless, i look forward to using the chair once I get it figured out.

    Thanks for showing how to make one of these!!! I also saw one made in which the seat and the back were connected by a wire some how insead of a bolt!!!
    Very Cool!!!
