DIY folding Observing Chair w/ Plans!

Looks fantastic ! I am going to have a go. Only issue I can see is making the notched rails.... Could drill the holes with a woodworking brace and then saw down the middle across the diameter of the holes.

you might also clamp the rails together tightly then drill down with a pillar drill

Thanks for sending me the link Ad Astra, I wonder how many new power tools I can buy to make this? Oh by the way, my wife may be slightly less than happy with you over this...

Several kind SGL'ers have shown kind interest in my DIY observer's chair, so I have decided to make a thread for it here. ;)

 

Thanks for posting this! I'm just about to begin building an observing chair myself and this has been really useful to me :)
