Based off of a research image of an antique Atlantic City Boardwalk chair, I drew up a full-scale draft of the side and plan views of the piece. It needed to be ridden in and rolled around a narrow walkway easily, so the entire frame was welded out of 1″ box tube and fitted with a modified wicker chair from stock. I also built a custom “foot cover,” whose tight curve necessitated a stretched canvas cover before an application of scavenged wicker pieces reactivated with warm water.
