Ordered the plan online and made this double wide porch chair out of Douglas Fir 2X4’s and a 2X6. Finished with an exterior oil finish.

I love the design and build on this one. I have not seen that pattern before. Where did you find it? That would look great on our new deck

The plan came from Woodcraft.com

You can search the Woodcraft site for Twin Seater Bench Plan to find it if this link doesn’t bring it up.

I used the General Finish Outdoor Oil available at Woodcraft and other places

That’s a great looking deck chair set—I’m sure you’ll get a lot of enjoyment from them this summer!
