10E2210: 2-Piece Camp/Beach Chairs

Based on a Civil War era design (can buy the plans for the above example from Mitchell-Hollow), these 2 piece camping chairs are a fencepost alternative to the 2cupholdersbrandedtohell chairs that pollute populate most beaches.

The above made by Scott Bailey's firm in the Appalachians from ash w/ stainless steel fasters and Sunbrella awning fabric. $50 here.
Another good ash option available from Kaufmann-Mercantile; waxed canvas back and all-weather Danish oil treated. $98.

These chairs recognizable as the well-loved Byers of Maine "Maine Loungers" - now made abroad of kiln dried keruing. $40.

Think I might try building one. Nice little weekend project. Treated timber, pocket hole jig & some cascamite should do it.
