This covered porch seating set includes six adjustable back chairs and a coffee table. The chairs and table are constructed from Angelim Pedra, a durable and weather resistant Brazilian hardwood. They are finished with an outdoor oil stain. The cushions are covered with Sunbrella outdoor fabric and for added comfort the seat bottoms have springs.

The chair design is a modified version of plans published by Laurie Mckichan and published online by

Wonderful project! A lot of work I’m sure. Is that wood hard to work with and is it heavy which would be good for stability?
Your porch looks better than most peoples living rooms!

That is a great idea! Can you estimate how many hours per chair?

Very nicely done – I love the clean lines, but addition of the curves. Truly look comfortable to relax in. Great job!

Awesome patio furniture. The entire set would fit right in with our Stickley living room furniture.

That’s quite the set.

For yourself? or a commission?
