I found this lumber on craigslist. The house was built with cedar fascia boards and when they rebuilt the house the owner didn’t want to toss the wood. Thank God..

Some of the wood has tunnels from carpenter bees which looks awesome. I epoxied the feet and water sealed the chairs. Believe it or not, they are comfortable for just being straight slats.

Nice job on these. They look stable enough that you could dive off of those footrests.

Beautiful looking chairs, love the wood. Sounds like you really found a great collection of wood, and to think they were just going to be thrown out.

Thanks! The plans were from I found them there which gives links to the actual plans. REALLY EASY to build, just time consuming when you use reclaimed lumber.
