Well, just in time for the 4th of July weekend.
My previous set of chairs were stolen this year, ending my study to see how long painted pine can survive outdoors. I was about 5 years into that study. I was kind of bummed.
Anyway, if there was a silver lining to this story (and I’m looking really hard for one) its that those chairs didn’t have an ottoman to go with them, and I’ve always wanted one.

New Yankee Workshop design.
Ottoman is my design.
Pressure treated pine deck boards.
Roughly 3hrs per chair/ottoman ~ 6hrs total
No finish yet…I’ll wait a year or so and either paint or stain.
Plugged screw heads at arms and back.
