Description

Communities in developing countries have limited budgets for education. Even though they may provide a school building, they often don't have money to buy furniture to equip it. However, low-cost, durable, attractive school chairs can be produced in essentially any region of the world from locally available wood, wood residues, or semi-processed woody materials. These chairs could fill a need for economical, functional school furniture in developing countries. This 6-page publication describes the process for producing these kinds of chairs.
