That crazy chair (Kentucky chair)

This post shows a chair I made from pine for a friend of mine a few years ago. I found the plans for it on the Internet and it looked interesting so I decided to make one just for fun. The original site where I found the plans doesn’t exist any more but the plans can be downloaded from www.woodworkcity.com using this link – notice that they actually used my original photo seen below in the pdf-file. 😀

As seen in the photos I detoured from the original plans. I stead of using a wire I ended up using 6 millimeter threaded rods for assembly because I couldn’t find a good way of locking the wire. The result is that my chair isn’t capable of being folded as the original was.

Despite the odd appearance it’s actually rather comfortable (you wouldn’t believe that at first glance).
