Tutorial wooden folding chairs

Once I found the right drawings and measurements making these chairs was quite easy.

They do not really fold but it is easy to make a folded one with the these drawings.

Materials needed:
  • Wood strips 3x2mm
  • Round 3mm wooden sticks or skewers
  • Wooden U-shape profile with 2mm inside measurement
  • 7x1mm wood for back rest

Download drawing with measurements

  • wet back rest, bend and let dry round  a bottle or so
  • cut the wood pieces and sand them lightly
  • make the seats with the u-profiles and wood strips
glue side pieces together using a fram of some sorts

glue seat onto the one side

place chair upright against a straight wall and glue on other side

glue backrest and foot rests between sides
- paint or varnish but don't spray them accidentally with a primer instead of varnish like I did 😏. Well, they are now in for a color rather than looking like wood..
- stick 'metal' hinges onto sides

The only fiddly part is the assembly. But with forms and guidance bits it works just fine.

Enjoy -
