This is my first try at furniture. We are redoing our deck and wanted a glider. This one is plans from woodcraft magazine. Worked pretty good.

Wood is cedar finish with general finish exterior 450 natural water base.
All screws plugged:

Great work It shows that you care about your work with the details. Taking the time to make and plug all the holes is so important in my opinon. Not sure why everyone does not do that. Great colors and wood. A real beauty! Well done.
