"camping" chair based on the "Schwedenstuhl" design
The lathes from the used slatted bed base are 65x14mm in size, so the following plans base on this dimensions. In addition, aquare 35x35mm wood was used.
No magic involved until now. Just wood, screws and glue.
the wood "paint" consists of two parts, applied one after the other. The 3rd step is to wax the wood.
see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_gall_ink and google search terms like "aging wood" for reference.
An important detail is the gap for the seat to go. Instead of 90° there is a slope of 10% (6,5mm for 65mm width). The square piece and the two flat pieces are glued. The upper parts are NOT glued, because they are used to clamp the backrest fabric down.
This involves more woodworking/sawing/planing:
....aaaand screws, screws, screws (not lowered here, yet):
Backrest fabric not mounted, yet.
