Well this is my first project that I am post on LJ’s. This was a wedding present for some friends that just got married. I was trying to think of something to get them for a while and it was getting close to crunch time. Then one day when I was over there house and saw that there new patio had those cloth and steel fold out chairs. I then knew what I could do. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to finish them for the wedding but I was able to put them on there patio and waiting for them to come back from there honeymoon. They said that it was exactly what they wanted put just didn’t have money for chairs at that time.

They are made out of western cedar and stainless steal hardware. It was a harder project than I thought it would have been. I made some mistakes due to rushing but I was able to fix it and they came out pretty good. The girlfriend really wants a pair for our own which I agree would be nice but would like to get my shop up are running instead of working in a crowded basement or picnic table outside.

I would like to say thanks to Ralmand for his help with the plans.

Thanks for looking

Very nice job on those chairs and it is a great gift. don’t even finish them. Let them weather to a beautiful gray. Cedar does not like a lot of finishes- especially varnishes. They peel off cedar because of the oil in it.

Thanks for sharing, Paul!!!!!!!!!......................Jim

Your chairs look great! Any chance you would share those plans? I have some now, but don;t like the look of the chair back I currently have.
