I was in upstate New York looking around for some of these and I think I could have driven the wheels off my car looking and looking. I finally gave up.

Here's a link to a first draft of the plans. Not the easiest chair to make due to the curves and funny angles, but I fancied a challenge and maybe someone else will too.

Awaiting the questions...

For what it's worth, I have a pdf set for a very similar chair, don't remember where I got them and haven't used them myself but they are pretty detailed. I do like the arms better on the ones in this thread, they look wider but anything is adaptable to your personal preferences if you take you time. Although, unless you are in your 20's and want to enjoy them before you get too old, I would recommend using more than a coping saw and sandpaper, lol. But you really don't need a lot of special tools to do them.

The file is larger than the site allows but I will be glad to email it to anyone who wants it. Just let me know you email address.
