    Would you be willing to share the plans once you get done with the task of making the 30 chairs?
    No plans involved.
    We consulted a size chart for chairs for children and chose the age group we were told to target, and ended up making just two sizes. One with the seat 10" off the floor and one with it 12". We made the seat parallel to the floor and the back tilted back 5°. Made it as tall as would fit well on the 60" x 60" plywood. (20" tall) Just free formed the curves with the help of some dividers (compass). They need large flat surfaces to do the artwork on, so we opted for this design.
    I made some 1/4" thick plywood templates, with cut outs in them, to mark where the backing blocks for the seat, backrest and stringer across the bottom should go.
    We have , in the past, made similar chairs but with slats as a back rest instead of the flat board, as on this design. The artists gave us feedback to not use the slats this time.

      I couldn't see the original pictures either (Windows 10 PC). Thank you for posting them again. That design looks sturdy yet comfortable. Nice job!

                Those turned out real nice. Be fun to see them after the painting is done.
