These were built with Douglas fur and are 22 inches wide and the back is 32 inches tall. All corners were rounded with a round over bit and sanded. The chairs have a Contoured back and seat for extra comfort. Let me know what you guys think.

William this looks nice and strong.

It also has me thinking as I’ve a bench to make

The seat profile looks comfortable. Is it?

William,

They look very nice. What plans did you use?

I remember, a looooong time ago, when my dad built a chair swing. He used a hand plane to break the edges of about a bazillion slats…

I’m not exaggerating….really, I’m not….. :)
