This looks really nice! Beautiful craftsmanship. Are you a professional woodworker?

No, just a hobbiest with a good Stihl woodsaw :D . I designed the chair first on a CADprogram, After that I plotted it 1/1 so I could use the papermalls to draw on the 18mm MDF. Would be even better with a CNC machine. But I don't have that. I'm putting 40cm legs underneath the seat so I get on the same level as my beamerscreen. My son of 5 and daughter of 8 as well as I can use the flightseat because it's totally ajustable. I'll post some more pictures when it's done.

Is it possible to post the CAD drawings ? . Could be handy for the persons who also like to build an adjustable chair like this.

I've put to much effort in this to give the design away for free.

If i want one i build it myself.
of course...using your drawing would spare me some effort or give me some ideas, but no prob.. i can do without ;-)

I was thinking about building one around an old seat of a small chair i have with the right dimensions.

Typically Dutch. As cheap as possible. :D
The pictures will deffinitly have given you some ideas.
Have fun. That's the most inportant part of building your own simseat.
