And believe it or not . . . it''t find a single volunteer to test it out in a photo.
But I promise, this one is super comfy.  If you''ve found on outdoor canvas fabric, 54""http://www.dpbolvw.net/click-3751913-10533695?cm_mmc=CJ-_-2875272-_-3751913-_-Free%20Return%20Shipping""_top""http://www.lduhtrp.net/image-3751913-10533695""1""1""0""field field--name-field-dimensions field--type-image field--label-above""field--label""field--item""/sites/default/files/images/adult%20sling%20chair%201.png""856""685""""img-responsive""field field--name-field-dimensionnumber field--type-string-long field--label-hidden field--item""field field--name-field-shoppinglist field--type-text-long field--label-above""field--label""field--item"" Diameter Wood Dowel

Drill the holes as shown above for the bolts.

Step 2

Build the smaller sling as shown above, taking great care again to create strong joints for the headers.

Step 3

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Once both frames are complete, line the frames up as shown above, and insert bolts, with washers on both sides of bolt, and one washer between the two wood frames to protect the finish on your wood frames. The chair should now swing open, but there will be nothing to keep the chair from staying open. See next step . . .

Step 4

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Build the propup support as shown above. Attach with bolts and washers to the backrest frame, in the remaining predrilled bolt hole. Rest between seatframe slats. You will be able to move the prop up to adjust the angle of the chair.

Fold bottom and top over 1 1/2” to create “sleeves.”
Topstitch using same seam allowance as on the sides.

Step 8

By threading the slings through the chair headers, then threading the dowels in the "" you create a sling that is held in place sturdily, but is easy to remove to wash or change the look up.

Finishing Instructions
Preparation Instructions
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth.

It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.

Will be doing these!

I love these chairs! We do kayaking and sailing camping expeditions in the Bahamas and the traditional, but cheap, camping chairs are so expensive and rust so fast, plus they are so ugly compared to these! I''luxury''t fall out during transport.

To make these chairs stronger - use hardwood for the frames, use 2x2s and 2x3s for the headers, use larger bolts. For an even stronger chair, you would use wider width boards for the frame, but at a certain point - the weight is going to be too much for the sling itself.

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for Perfect chairs!

And I was worried that I may have to figure out how to scale the kid''m thinking the only addition that would make it better is a small pillow with a pocket along the top for a dowel so it can be fit in the like the sling covers. Leaves you free to use either side of the sling cover with your pillow.

Guess it''ll volunteer for your adult lounging in it as soon as we get one done
