The set is now complete. 2 Bistro captain chairs, a bistro table, 2 lager tables, 2 party benches and a sweet couch! Thank-you to the Jalberts for making this possible and a shout out to my 3 strong Buds for helping me deliver that HEAVY HEAVY HEAVY wood.

No that is woodworking with some big tools! These look great and comfy to boot.

“Have you gone down to the woods today?” You know, there’s something about a man with a huge chainsaw…
I missed what type of tree/wood this was. I’m not sure how comfortable they are-are they? But, I’m definitely intrigued by them. I’m surprised you could hack out enough good wood to make them without major splits, etc. I’ve been looking for a nice chunk of white oak to make a pilon and pile (standing mortar and pestle), to make filet (sassafras powder) in the old Cajun way. Have an antique one over at the park museum where I give herbal demonstrations, but haven’t located a big enough chunk-needs to be about 2-3 feet high, finished. Have you worked with white oak?
