Here they are, drawings for the lovely chairs that Ton brought as gifts for ...

Let me start by wishing you and Linda all the best for 2013.
I have finally got around to rigging my old computer again and I am happy to report that I was able to find the chair drawings again. (Attached). Please feel free to copy it to your web site or maybe it fits better on the Wayfarer Institute of Technology (copied)?
The drawing comes from a school project intended for 10 to 12 year old children. I can scan the original document if you like. Next to the (simplified) drawings it holds a list of materials (planks, screws, etc.), a list of tools and a descriptive text about how to use the tools, but it is in Dutch. So, unless you plan to develop a US version of this school project I don't think it is of any use to you.
I have also attached the original 'Microsoft Office Visio' file in case someone wants to brush it up a little or change measurements to Imperial before publishing.
Please note there is a lot of stress on the lower plank on the back side. I ended up re-enforcing it with some heavy duty copper, countersunk, screws, replacing dowels, after they broke. On the upper planks I used blind dowels. The plank at the bottom-front is sunk in the standing planks and as such strong enough as it is. For the seat I also used blind dowels instead of screws.
