Kentucky Stick Chair

This is something I have found out has been around forever, but I have only recently come across. A friend of mine that lives over in Louisiana told me about them and directed to the plans. The plans can be seen for free at the BuildEasy website, or a PDF version can be bought for five dollars. I suggested the bought plans because they are in an easier format to print and carry to the shop with you.
These are not hard to build. They only consist of three two by fours ripped into sticks and various hardware to hold them together. Once assembled, they are extremely strong, but also comfortable.
 Another great feature of these chairs is that they fold up for easy carrying and storage. I have made two of them now. One I made out of simple yellow pine and treated with Thompson's Waterseal. The other I made out of pressure treated pine. The untreated ones are quite light. The pressure treated ones do have some weight to them and may be a little on the heavy side for beach goers.
