Finally got around to building these chairs. I’ve had the redwood for approx. 16 years. A friend who owned a decking business pulled the lumber off of a deck and asked me if I wanted it. I have stored it all this time with the thought of building a couple of chairs. The plans are from Fine Woodworking. I tweaked them just a little.

Great job on those chairs. I have always thought of making a couple of those as well. Were the plans in a book or on line?

Very nice chairs Lboy. I wouldn’t mind having a pair of these if I could still get up and out of them.

Very nice job on these. I’m in the process of making four of them from that same plan. The change I’m doing is making the seat wider—23” wide instead of 19”. The 19” width was not going to work for my client. I’m going to have to use curves with different radii from the plans, and I haven’t figured out how to do that yet. I might also slightly increase the width of the back slats…

Thanks for all the nice comments. The lumber was milled down from 2×6 material. The sides are a little over 1” and the slats are 13/16”. Since the lumber was given to me I splurged on hardware and used stainless steel carriage bolts and screws. I purchased the plans from Fine Woodworking. They were helpful but I would like to design my own now.

Have your say...
