Looks like another "new" folding design. Nothing online means no one's built it. Looks like an easy build too. What's stopping you from building it?

I love the design and the portability...and I think I am gonna go for it. I was just wondering if anyone out there can share a few pics and/or thoughts on the process. I am somehow handy and love working with my hands, but I've never worked with bending wood (jigs, whoops and all that)...the website does advertise their products as straight forward to build, so i guess it's worth a try...

You will enjoy steaming wood! Grain orientation is the make or "break" of the process. We (my son and I) used to have about a 98% success ration bending white oak and ash. 100% with white cedar.
