One of the things we like to do as part of the Econo Challenge is challenge each other
with camp craft projects.
And this one happens to be my favourite.
It’s a reclining deck chair in the wilderness.
And I’m going to show you how ah to make this.
But it’s very important to point out that all of our projects are always made with DEAD
WOOD scavenged form the woods.
Never. And I mean never cut live wood unless you are in an emergency situation.
So here’s how you make this reclining deck chair in the wilderness.
The first thing you need to do is you need to make an “A” frame.
Cut three pieces of wood above your own head. OK?
That way we can keep the measurements proportional to you.
You want to tie off the one end.
Set up your “A” frame.
And then, of course, you need the seat.
The seat can be made out of a sac.
Um. A coffee sac would be a good choice.
I have made this out of nylon because, of course, I would like it to be lite and portable.
And you find one more piece of wood to slide through the bottom of your seat.
And then you simply hang it off of your “A” frame.
What do you think of the chair?
It’s Amazing. It’s so comfortable on your back. Well supported. Very sturdy and ah after
being on your feet all day out hear, well received.
So what you have when you are all done is a comfortable deck chair in the wilderness.
Ah that’s just beautiful. Feels good.
