Tis the season for enjoying outdoors. I built these chairs for my neighbor from red and white oak. Since the finish was going to be dark semi-transparent stain I wasn’t worried about mixing the oak. I glued 1/4 inch pressure treated pine to all the ground contact legs. I followed the Redwood Project Plans with a little adaptation mainly from using larger thickness materials than called for. I used up a lot of marginal quality rough-cut boards from my saw mill for the build. Hand planning and sanding to make things fit properly. I did scrape the arm rests smooth. Pre-drilled and countersunk all the screw holes. My neighbor bought and chose the color of the stain,and did most of the application. She’s happy, that’s all that matters.
