I know. I know ! He made something out of a door again !
I have had this project in my HEAD for several weeks now. Now it is in my shop, waiting to be painted and upholstered. This chair is made from 2 old house doors. One white and one brown. The back is made from reclaimed cedar. The bottom is also solid cedar slabs from cabinet I bought at auction. No plans. I measured my old mission glider in our house and went to shop and winged it. Sometimes it is nice when dreams become reality. I am slowly running out of old doors. ha ha.

DOOR is painted and complete.

Nice recycle project. It’ll look good when you get the cushions on it. I like the Adirondack style arms, they make good place to rest a beer.

Great Idea! I love re-purposing items into new items too, and this chair looks great and real comfortable!
