This is garden furniture set I made for my first neighbour (I’m kind of woodworker on duty in my street). It’s made completely of firwood. Basic construction joints were glued – rounded mortises I made on my new horizontal router (with litle jig I made – idea from my LJ buddy ZAGREB). All laths were screwed and table legs were strenghten with threaded screws and nuts. My neighbour will put finishes by himself.
The back is with 12 degree angle to get more comfort. The most demanding were back supports made of two pieces – glued overlaping tenon thru open mortises (I don’t know how to describe and say it) strenghten with two dowels.

Great, Ivan. I, too, wondered about the structural stability where the back meets the bench. Did you take any pictures while you were building it. I’d like to see your solution, which you say is “hard to explain.”
I have a chair that I built almost a year ago. I built the lower part, built the back, and put it out on the driveway, waiting to be inspired as to how to attach the two parts. I don’t know why I never thought, til just now, to write a Blog on it, and ask for Buddy help. I may do that. It’s worked before.

Beautiful work Ivan, really nicely done.

On another note, when I used Google translate for your friend Marijan’s comment, I got this:

“Hey buddy … fala what I praise …
have tested how the hernia can stick to chairs?
that bed, you’re standing in your yard and your neighbor laughs and sits when the car … hehehe
but he has no sausage when you, for the record
be welcomed
rooting for the top 3
Marijan”

I thought it was pretty hilarious, especially the sausage part.

Great work!~

Looks like a bridal joint. Should be fine.

Looks like it’s time for BBQ season. Great job Ivan. Your neighbors should invite you over for a party to break it in.
