This is an original design – they are extra heavy to be able to stand up to a lot of abuse, salt and sun. I’m curious to see how long the finish holds up… so far, I have yet to find anything in this country that can last more than 6 months in the salt and sun of my home (we are about 50 feet from the Atlantic Ocean and the wind is always blowing salt inland).

Here in the Dominican Republic, there is very limited availability of dimensional lumber. So, I have to buy large rough stock (or trees) by the bundle, then saw and plane them down to whatever size I need. The good news is that I can get all sorts of exotic hardwoods by just sending someone out to look for a tree (of course, it needs to be on someone’s land who wants to sell it :-> )

I built 20 of these for the pool and patios at my home. Then, I stitched cushions from polybacked canvas.

I’m a beginner woodworker – so, please excuse the amateur joinery!
