The first of a planned pair of solid cedar deck chairs with custom cushions made of Sunbrella fabric.
For some strange reason, there’s very little smooth-cut Cedar to be found in my neck of the woods. Almost everything was smooth-cut one side only, so a lot of time with the ROS and oscillating belt sander. The plan is from Lowe’s Sun Chair. They used to give these plans away in the stores, but I don’t think they do that any more.
Several coats of spar varnish add some shine and waterproofing. I took the easy way out and ordered the Sunbrella-covered cushions on-line instead of making them myself. These chairs should be good for years, even in the harsh Florida sun.
We’d have two chairs already but it’s hard to find cedar 2” x 4”s down here. I’m waiting for the local lumberyard to get more in so I can finish the second chair.
Sitting behind the chair is the garden cart we finished last fall.
