I built these a few months ago. The first one was just to test some plans I had bought. Then my wife got involved. She picked the color so it would show up well on the front porch. Then had to have a second to go with it.
Now, I get comments from neighbors and relatives about how they would like some of these. Since they aren’t woodworkers they don’t see the little mistakes in slat spacing and finish.
The first was a prototype so I built it from cheap pine. When they were slated for a covered porch I built the second of the same matierial. The finiish is two coats of primer and two coats of acrylic latex.
My next ones will be unfinished cypress to go in the yard.
