DIY folding Observing Chair w/ Plans!

Recommended Posts

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.

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 :)

Many years ago I made myself a very inexpensive Denver chair and it has served me well enough, though I've long wanted to improve on it in a few areas. About four years ago I built an observing chair very similar to this one from plans I found online. The only material difference I see is I used wooden dowels rather than pipe.

I've decided to build myself this viewing chair because the Denver chair doesn't have enough height to use with my frac or cat, though I'll likely go with the wooden dowel rods in this build as well.

Thanks for making this available!
