I did not center the arm on the front 2×4, this should make it easier to get in and out of the .

Edge boards

Build A Lawn Chair From Recycled Skis

Measure and cut two side boards to 20″ and then make the other two boards 17″ (or 20″ – 2 x width of your lumber). The edges are embedded in the skis and if you force the cut too much you’ll pull the edge out making for an ugly and rough edge.

If you’re, say, sitting on top of a snowy hill and someone attacks you from the front, can you tilt back and escape as if it were a sled ?
