This chair was intended to be adjustable. I had bored three holes through the arms for removable pegs I made of Hickory. But, naturally, the holes on the back didn’t line up. Not to be outsmarted, I plugged the two that didn’t, and stopped calling it adjustable. The back will tilt forward, but there’s no point in it.
It’s built of Douglas Fir. That’s an awful bit of wood, if one intends to sculpt, which I did. I finished it with a One Step Walnut Stain. It’s the prettiest chair of the few that I’ve made. It’s all wood. No metal. For some reason, that means something to me in outdoor furniture. (The stain issue, I guess – so many places moisture can invade.)
I had this in my Web Store for the longest time. Once I dropped the price, in a “fire sale” (Buy it, or I set it on fire), to a giveaway level, my niece took pity and bought it – for the sale price. Now it lives on her back patio, under a cover.
