My buddy was cutting cedar for 4×4 fence posts and slats the other day at his saw mill and he called to see if I wanted to look through the cut-off slabs in the burn pile. I took a bunch of pieces. I liked the chairs that fellow lumberjock Bowtie posted in 2011. He was kind enough to point me to the Yellawood website for a free download of an outdoor projects book. (If you haven’t seen it, check out www.yellawood.com.) Thanks to Bowtie for responding to my message.
It ends up that the slabs I got were not wide enough to make the Adirondack chairs, so I decided to use their plans for a garden bench and modify it for the use of cedar slabs. I was able to put this bench together in less than two hours. Kind of fun use for wood that was fifteen minutes shy of being burnt.
It is not staying on the deck and will probably end up in yard somewhere.
Thanks for looking.
