The small one is cherry and for my grand daughter.

The larger one is made from SYP construction lumber (carefully selected and dried ;-))

Thanks for looking

Construction lumber! Seriously!?? That just makes such a beautiful chair even more impressive in my book.

Pete,
I like your approach-building a “prototype” with inexpensive wood to learn the skills. Then applying them to the “costs a fortune by the board foot” material.
Have used that approach on some of my projects as well, and surprisingly turned out stuff I ended up using.

Your craftsmanship really shows through when using lumber like this. Anyone would be proud to sit in those.
