 I need to determine what type of chair. I've been attracted to solid wood sleeping chairs, no upholstery, caning, etc. This type of chair also fits into my skill set, shop equipment and lumber stock. I want the design to be fairly straight forward but have the option to get more intricate if the prototype works out. Finally, I don't plan to build a plywood prototype, I'll build it with quality lumber understanding I may need to adapt on the fly.

When thinking about chair designs there is a lot of detail that doesn't immediately meet the eye.  I think I would defiantly prototype, but I would use poplar not ply.  Adapting on the fly with hardwood lumber can get expensive real quick.  The other option would be to find inexpensive chair from retail with a similar design, buy it and reverse engineer it.
