• 11 x stout staves 0.9m (3ft)
  • 10 x stout staves 1.2m (4ft)
  • 30 light lashings


The two side frames are built first using 4 x 1.2 m staves for each. The seat support bars need to be 0.45m (18″) up from the bottom of the uprights ( a ).

Next, join the side frames using 4 x 0.9m (3ft) staves.

Another 0.9m stave is lashed to the seat support 0.2m in front of the back tie.

Lash 2 x 1.2m staves in place to support the back of the seat.

Use the remaining 0.9m (3ft) staves in place to form the seat and back rest.

If necessary, stabilise by lashing some diagonal bracing between the back legs.
