This was a fun project to build, and helped to continue develop my budding woodworking skills. I followed a plan that I bought from woodcraft.com. Now I have a nice place to sit in the backyard and watch the kids play.

What did you use for the lumber selection? Looks like Cedar, 3/4”? I don’t know where you are at, but atleast here in Michigan, you can get the 5/4 cedar pre-planed for practically the same price as the 3/4 cedar. The results are amazingly different with the 5/4, stronger, solid, and not much more weight. If you plan to make a bunch, make a set of 1/4” hardboard templates. Check out www.facebook.com/keencustomwoodwork , I’ve been producing them for about 2 1/2 years now and they are a great way to put your hobby to work for you.

Oh yes. That’s a New Yankee Workshop plan. Looks good.

Yep, it was 3/4” cedar. It was pre-planed on one side, and the other side was rough. I’m here just north of Dallas, TX and that’s all my two big-box home stores sell. I guess I need to find a good lumber yard where I can get some 5/4” stock. Thanks for the advice. That’s my one concern is that the 3/4” legs aren’t stable enough.

Have your say...
