I used redwood reclaimed from a fence to build this chair. I am in the process of making a set (2 chairs, one lounge and a table w/umbrella stand) of outdoor furniture from this redwood. It was a great score as the guy was going to send this wood to the dump. I first planned it all on my Grizzly planner, then, using patterns I made out of 1/4” plywood – these were based on what was labeled a “captain’s style” rocking chair that I saw in a furniture design book. I finished it with Formby’s Satin tongue oil and then 3 coats of Marine Spar Varnish. Please feel free to critique or comment and thanks for viewing.
