Awsome chair!! Can't wait to make it myself :) but one thing i missed, how long are the front leggs in total?

From the first picture, it looks like 45.5cm (10cm top, 4.5cm bottom, 45.5cm side). Hope that helps.

nah, 45.5 that's the length of the handles. the front legs look like three/quarters of the back legs, that would make them 70-ish. 69,375 cm to be exact. But I would say the important part is 37.5 cm at the bottom - the height of handles is entirely up to you, since that's that is applied to the top of the front legs. And the handles are screwed to the side of back legs, so sliding them up/down according to whatever length you choose for front is easy.

it is exactly like that :)

Nice mate i like it , would look even cooler with 5 coats of yacht varnish , just a thought .

Very nice design. I will try to build myself one and reinforce it diagonally, since I am heavy and like to balance on back legs :) Ikea chairs last a year - we'll see about this one!
