During the last year and more than a dozen Roorkhee chairs, I’ve made small changes to the materials list for this chair.
I hate to say it, but most of the changes are because Americans are more
lard-butted full-figured than a 19th-century British officer.
You can download the updated materials list here.

I can’t post the original article from October 2012 – that is the property of Popular Woodworking Magazine. But you’re smart. You can figure it out. Or you can buy the issue here.
Here’s a link to the free SketchUp drawing.

Who, us pizza loving Americans?!
(Those chairs are awesome.)
There are a few conversions that seem off … is there a reason for that (IE material availability in Europe) or maybe these are the unconverted changes you’ve made because of the ample posteriors?
Stretches are noted as 1.125″ (1-1/8″) dia. and 25mm dia. (which is ±1″)
Strap fittings and material are noted as 0.75″ (3/4″) and 15mm (which is ±5/8″)
