Well, so I wanted to  make a project with para cord and thought I would make something really easy. Then I decided to make THIS CHAIR :). 

Of course after the sore hands and increased muscle strength to my  grips I am not sure if I would do it again, but it was a lot of fun!

I will show you the prettiest version of the chair first!

Step 1: Come up with the idea and do a drawing!

So this is my first Instructable, so bear with me. Its a little last second submission as well. But HERE WE GO!

I had the thought to  make something that would be fun  to make and also useful for me. So I figure I would go with a CHAIR!

It may have been a bit ambitious but its been a fun journey so far!

If you have an idea, draw it in a notebook!

<p>great job!</p>
Really nice chair on your next one just a idea use short dowel as a handle wrap the cord around it a couple of turns and pull <br>easier than fingers
<p>Thanks! Yeah thats a really good suggestion! If I have a second go at it I will probably modify quite a few things! along with having a more stylish color as cord. I am imagining red would actually make this chair &quot;POP&quot; haha.</p>
<p>Great i'ble! Don't know if I'm up to the challenge, but enjoyed your work.</p>
<p>Ya know, with a few tweaks it would be a lot easier! Instead of hole I think nicely cut notches would work better since you wouldnt have to sustain tension and thread a hole. Probably double wrapping and having an internal notch would solve most of the stringing difficulties. Along with what @bgpison1 had suggested using some dowel to assist.</p>
How comfortable is it with it being cord?? Awesome idea!!!
<p>You'd be surprised at how comfortable it is! You can add a cushion on top of the cord if you want to. Your butt doesnt end up hitting the cross section. It can hold a good amount of weight as well. I weigh over 200lbs and its no problem.</p>
This chair is awesome
<p>Thanks Gabriel! You are the first person to comment on my first post! The Warm Fuzzies are in full effect! </p>
I wonder if you could make a chair in that form but out of cardboard
<p>Hmm thats a good question. I dont think you could because of the amount of tension that the cord requires. But that being said, with some thicker cardboard stacked and gleud you could probably just get a cushion to put in the middle section and it would still work just fine as a seat. Not so sure about the back rest though and cardboard.</p>
