Gotta love scraps. A local fence company builds their wood fences from white cedar. And they always have scraps, cutoffs and castoffs. A couple of weeks back I stopped in and they had a bunch of 2×4 white cedar cutoffs all at 30 or so inches. And I mean a bunch. Yep, I rescued them from the dumpster.
I recall reading sometime ago about a fella who made a Morris Chair for outdoors use. A quick search and I turned up plans on Popular Woodworking’s website for an All-Weather Morris Chair.
So I used this scrap white cedar to make this chair. Planed it all down and sized it properly, glued some of it up for the wider peaces. I had to buy one board for the arms. Stained it a nice blue as it will be a birthday present.
