In this video I show how to make a leather-seated 3-legged camp chair using 2-3oz veggie-tanned leather, wooden dowels, 550 cord (about 12ft long), and some leather working tools. The tools can be bought from

WARNING: I have recently fluctuated in weight at 5'8" between about 245lbs - 210lbs (I totally mis-spoke in the video), I am using 1-1/4" in diameter wooden dowels for the chair legs....if you choose to try this project, please be sure you use a thickness in dowels that will safely support your weight.
