Folding Chair Plans

It seems there are never enough chairs for entertaining, but they take up so much space in the average home or apartment. Folding chair plans make extra seating accommodations an inexpensive and space saving project.

There are plans for both fold-up models and break down styles, as well as a director's chair model that uses inexpensive canvas or decorator fabric for the seat and back.




Use folding chair plans to make simple chairs for your home, deck or patio. Choose fine wood for an elegant look to dress up plain chairs. If extra seating is a problem for your outdoor living space, select redwood or teak for chairs that withstand the elements. Using UV treated outdoor fabrics adds a decorator touch and is a longwearing choice for deck chairs.
