Cross-Brace Chair

Comments (2)

Easy to build and store

Two simple subassemblies, made from strong, rot-resistant white oak, add up to one comfortable seat that you can use indoors or out. For easy storage, simply slide out the seat/leg subassembly from the back/leg subassembly and slip it between the back rails of the back/leg subassembly. Make the two hardboard templates first, and employ them to build as many chairs as you like.

Scott Phillips of the PBS show The American Woodshop provided this clever design. He fastened the slats by drilling counterbored holes and driving #8 x 11/4" self-tapping, washerhead outdoor screws by Kreg.
