I’m fairly new to woodworking, so my wood skills aren’t quite up to the high standard that I see some others displaying, but ya gotta start somewhere.
Wood used here is old red oak 2” X 6” boards from a barn in Tennessee. I planed and then cut the wood to length. Joined with biscuits (a bit of overkill maybe for their size). Sanded and stained before adding polyurethane. Seat size is 17” X 17” X 32” high. Kinda tall, but that’s what my friend wanted as far as height goes.
Legs / frame are 1.500” square tube, .065” wall hot rollled steel (gasp – I know, I know) powdercoated in translucent black. Welds were ground and polished and are visible through the coating.
I was happy with how the wood came out. I tried not to remove all of the old saw marks on the wood while planing and sanding and was able to leave quite a bit of it on there.
