While I was visiting the Ozark Old Time Music Festival last month in
West Plaines, MO I met a man who built some rather amazing folding chairs.
In a nutshell, here is how they opened:
The back was lifted upward/upright, and then the two pieces which were

a rocking-chair version.
Has anyone else here seen these chairs? My effort to locate one on
