Very nicely built. Very keen to see them get their finish.

Other than the colour, what marks big different between white pine and yellow pine?.
I cannot identify which is which when exposed to the sun.

Have you considered Milk Paint, then a clear coat?
Many of the adirondack chair makers in Kentucky do it that way.

nice design dan, i’m getting hooked on this chair building
i built my last ones with cypress cause the customer didn’t want them painted
i think randy’s right, the milk paint is sort of traditional

woodworm- other than the color when it’s new the white pine is much lighter weight, good for interior projects, trim work and such, paints and stains well
southern yellow, heavier and better for outdoor application also much higher moisture content at least around here
