Construction grade pine from the home depot.(2×4,2×6 etc)Leather I upholstered for the first time with a foam cushion.Joined with dowels and corner blocks because I wanted to get it done quickly, and there were a lot of students using the mortising machines :) Spray lacquered finish.Sits in my sisters new apartment

Looks familiar. I used 3” foam and a leather like cloth with a lizard skin pattern about the same color as yours.

Nicely done.I was told when you screw in corner blocks the screws should be 90 degrees to the longest face of the block, and this helps to pull everything into the leg,rather than pulling the joint apart.3” foam sounds like sitting on a cloud.Looks like cedar?cherry?

It is like a cloud. You just float down. Yes, western red cedar. All the rails have deep tenons, the blocks are more for fastening the seat. Hard to see from the pic but the arc you have below your seat I used on the lower stretcher. You did a nice job.
thanks

I think it makes more sense visually that the curved stretcher is on the bottom.Keep up the good work!
