I’m building a redwood one at the moment. I’m using reclaimed redwood from a deck that I’ve had for over a year. It’s probably still a couple days away from getting the seat done, still have to buy the chain and hang it up. Sorry I don’t have any plans, just some shop notes and a couple crude drawings. I’m going for a high back design, blind screwed slats, and usable arms, no chains coming out of or on top of the arms. Not my first one. Post pics soon.
