Dimensions - 23 1/2"W x 22"D x 36 1/2"H (59.7cmW
x 56cmD x 92.7cmH)
Unlike a regular folding directors chair, which uses metal braces, this design
is completely made of wood except for two bolts. This chair utilizes a dowel ended cross support that runs in a
dadoed slot in the legs.
In designing this chair, I felt it was important to keep the integrity of the original chair, made by my Grandfather in the
1930's. I have refurbished the last 2 original chairs, but I find that they are
too small for most people.The new design is 3" wider and 2" taller, so it can be used at a regular height
dining table. I have changed the design by adding mission style side panels for strength, ease of assembly and
material replacement when needed.
As seen in the pictures above, the chair folds to 5" wide for easy storage. Great for carrying in your trunk
for the kids ball games, picnics, the beach or tucking away in a corner for extra seating when guests arrive.
