Finished my table set for the new Arm Chair. After building the 36”x36” top, I realized that the weight was too much for the 3/4” legs….so back to Home Depot for a nice clean 2”x10”. Now the table doesn’t wobble, and the pedestal can be multiplied for a top as long as you want.
The table slats are 1/4” apart to match the chair, and vary in size like my Settee plan. The pedestal is attached to runners, then screwed to the underside of the table top, without interfering with the spaces. This is important in our area with plentiful pine and hemlock needles, to eliminate clogging and potential rot. The side tables are 20”x20”x20” and can be put bedside each other for a coffee table….or use 2 pedestals and build a single longer top.
Since I had the 28” pedestal already made in 3/4”, I decided to add a plant stand to the line. The top can be constructed to match the pot you have.
The Grandma & Grandpa chairs will fit the table as well. but the Arm chair is more comfortable for eating. The 36”x36” table will accommodate 4 Arm chairs. Again, like the side table, you can make a longer table top using 2 or 3 pedestals.
The Grandma plans will be available this weekend, and hopefully the Chair next week. Check my Etsy link if you are interested in plans.

Thanks for looking.

Nice looking set Phil! Did you use SS hardware on those?

Thanks Steve. I always build my prototypes using galvanized steel nuts and bolts. If I was building out of mahogany or oak or other better wood than pine, I would use SS hardware. This whole set as well as 7 more armchairs I need to build, will all be painted white and off to the cottage for the summer.

Looks great Phil. I have received the Grandpa chair plan I ordered from you (thanks for the very fast service) and I just need to buy some lumber. I hadn’t noticed before, but have you used Cedar or Redwood for the chairs. I am thinking of redwood if I can find good stock here to buy.

Thanks Larry. Just got some pics from a Customer in Honolulu of his Grandpa Chairs.
I only use pine shelf boards from HD and work around the knots. As you can see it’s pretty clear. I need to build one, then another from the templates from the first one, and I just paint them all white. The Grandma’s stay home for the front porch and the rest add to the 20 already at the cottage…lol.
I made 2 Beach chairs from African Mahogony and have to re-treat them more than the painted ones. In your climate redwood or cedar would be great.

Have fun.

Hadn’t really thought about using pine or poplar and painting them. How often do you need to repaint? I guess that all depends on the weather. I will make the templates since I have a feeling friends will want one or two. We have allot of get togethers so they will be seen by lots of folks. With 20 chairs, you must have lots of friends or family.

Not really…just very fortunate to have inherited the family cottage which is a rock point. I have various vantage points facing all directions with groups of chairs at each spot. 100 years this July 1st !!!
Most images on my site are taken at the cottage.

I only paint every 5 years or so…this year I will try the sprayer.
