Very nice! I would like to make a few camp chairs, would be a nice gift for my sons. Where did you get plans for your chair?

Super comfortable thinking of making a taller version for a tooling and sewing chair.

Here is where I got the pattern data:text/html;base64,PG1ldGEgZGF0YS1mYnByZWZldGNodGFyZ2V0IC8+

There’s a couple others out there without the pockets to hold the seat, the seat is held on by screws in the end of the dowels. Also Tandy sells a kit and a couple other places sell the tri-bolt although the nice ones are expensive.

Fire88 - Very nice work! I tried to follow the link that you posted, but unfortunately it's not working. Could you repost please? I'd like to make one of these as a guitar playing seat/stool and this design would work perfectly and be portable as well. -Thanks!

For those looking for a pattern, this is mine. PDF down load attached. Print on 8.5x11 paper with no scaling on the print size.

I found 24" legs with hinge point 10.5" from the top works well.

I use #9 copper rivets for my assemblies.

Where do you source your legs?  I have a seat ready but I'm having the hardest time actually finding legs for the thing...been thinking about cutting down some tool handles.

Tool handles are too small. Head over to the nearest Home Depot, Lowes or whatever you have near you and buy a 1-1/4" hickory or other hardwood dowel. You can usually get a 6' piece. Cut it into  24" long pieces and make your legs.

No problem. Just be sure to print with no scaling and let me know how it worked out for you.
