I made this chair to donate to the local youth group in St. Helena, CA. They went to New Orleans to work for Habitat for Humanity and needed some help with expenses.
What is new with this chair is the finish. I was using outdoor polyurethane and then switched to marine varnish. The problem with those finishes is that you have to apply several coates and sand between each coat allowing for drying time. That can be a real pain, especially in the winter time in my area.
The new finish I am using is a oil/wax made for outdoor furniture. It even has a UV protection ingredient. I have done two more chairs since the one pictured above, a his and hers set, and this finish is the way to go.
