Here is a small camp chair I just finished. It is a Civil War style. Now, some of you may wonder what I am doing with a CW style anything when my reenactment is limited to pre-1830. Well, fact is, even us really old time reenactors get old backs that need resting. This style is pretty well accepted at earlier type rendezvous and events because it does not clash visually with the era and everyone realizes that folks do need to sit down. Not many people of that time lived to my age, and those that did were very unlikely to be found in wilderness camps with little, or no, amenities. Anyhow, the chair slides into itself for ease of carrying. I have a larger, heavier version also but this one is light for ease of carrying around camp. The frame is ash. I don't know what the cross-pieces are. The wood was given to me and I have forgotten what I was told. It is either mahogany or teak.
