We needed some footrests on our deck. I saw a design I liked on a retail web site but didn’t want to spend $100 each! I guessed at dimensions and built mine from cedar. They turned out to be extremely comfortable as you can rest your legs on the top or rest your feet on the angled sides. I thought of plugging the screw holes for a cleaner look but decided to leave them open so I could tighten the screws as age and weather takes it’s toll.

I like them Jerry. Good reminder to get off your feet and admire your handiwork.
