Nothing exciting just a typical Adirondack chair. I stained it with Ebony stain and used an outdoor spray on urethane for the finish

Do you have other pieces to go with it?

Is it just oversized, or will it comfortably accomodate 2-people, more like a bench?

I could see this flanked by a couple of end tables, or possibly an outdoor coffee table.

By the way, welcome to LumberJocks!

Yeah its llike a bench. It easily fits two adults. I was going to call it a bench too but went with oversized. I see now how that could be confusing. I do have more pics Ill add them today. I plan on making a swing to go next to it and a coffee table. It will be additional seating for my patio. I got the plans from a book called 2×4 Projects for Outdoor LIving. Its an older book I got at half price books for like 3$. If you do get the book becareful and read all the plans before you go get your materials because they have alot of typos in there. I ended up learning that the hard way! Ill add a pic of the material list from the book that may help you out if you wanna make one. The pic may be hard to see but for the back slats it 12- 1×4. Not 11- 1×6. Thanks for the welcome and comments!
