As a woodworker and owner of Udny Designs, I fell in love with the Bear Chair during a trip to Canada. After building a few chairs from a kit, I decided to make my own using templates and recycled materials. Over the years, I built over 15 chairs, each one faster to make and with unique features. Now, over 23 years later, the original chairs are still in my garden and I plan to make a few new ones. In this blog post, I share my journey with the Bear Chair and my love for outdoor furniture.
