reply chair project

The rePly Chair project provides free downloadable plans to make your own recycled plywood lounge chair. The project developed as a response to the overwhelming amount of plywood waste generated in the construction industry. All the parts for the chair can be made from small pieces of scrap plywood that can be collected from anywhere. The website for the project provides plans for the chair and has a gallery where completed chairs are posted.

This rePly chair was made by Propellor Design from scraps of plywood leftover from various woodworking projects as well as pieces of an old sign found in a back alley. Since the rePly chair is an open source design you are free to customize or improve the chair any way you see fit. Propellor Increased the size of the chair to 150% of the original design and then finished it with a coat of linseed oil and beeswax, applied with a liberal dose of elbow grease.
