As I read through this thread, I realized that I need a one man chair that can be carted around in one hand. It needs to be a tripod. The place is covered in trees. My chair needs only two legs. The third and the one that gives the whole thing stability is a tree. It's all based on a small log that forks into two branches. The fork becomes two legs. A live edge slab is the seat. Lean it against any solid spot where the top can't readily slide and it's a very stable lounge chair.
My beautiful drawing --- The seat should probably be mounted lower, so that the rear has two attachment points, just below the crotch. The two thinner sticks can be either branches that grew there or limbs from another tree that are attached. They will be in tension, so only need to be thick enough to be attached firmly. I hope I can find a specimen with all of the right pieces naturally occurring. This would make a chair with only 2 pieces of wood. A flat backrest could be added.
I'm in the city for a while, but this will be my first green wood working project. I'll pack it around when I'm clearing trails.
If this thing had a head, it would look like a waiter carrying a tray.
