Thanks for the post guys the first answer is they take about 2-4 hours depending on how you build them I use jigs to help with the assembly. Second the wood is western red cedar & woodcraft sells templates to build a similar chair this helps dramatically in making the main components also go with 305 or higher stainless screws with western red cedar or you will be sorry in about a year .

Elmer,
I think the chairs and table look very nice. They are well built and look solid. Good luck with the sales, I think if you can keep your costs down, you can make a nice profit. Every where I sell my chairs, people comment on how nice the look and how they used to see them all over the place when they were kids. There are plenty of companies selling cheap flimsy pine chairs with nails or staples. Quality chairs like yours are harder to find and people will pay for the quality. As wood workers, we cannot compete with Walmart prices. We have to find the people willing to pay for handcrafted American made quality.

I love those chairs. Great work. I’ve always wanted to build some of those chairs for my back yard. Maybe I’ll get around to it someday.
