Just another cypress project [at least to me] All, cypress. 5/4 framing and arms with 1×2 pieces for the seating area itself. I have been making these in 4’and 5’ lengths for a few months now and can cut and build this in about 3.5-4 hours start to finish. I have also designed this to fold down for shipping.
I just got done making 5 of these for the same person. One was made to have legs and look like bench.
I am a retired wood patternmaker who needed something to do. I have my own shop but started working in a shop that is owned by a lumber yard. The owner loves cypress and has me building projects like these (posted) for sale. After almost 30 years of not working in a shop, I am finally making them as fast as he expects them to be made. LOL
Almost like a real job, but in my case, P/T and when I feel like it and as long a day as I want. The best thing is that he has better tools than I have, so I use his tools to start a project and then bring them home to finish “my” projects.
