New chairs for the deck or lawn. These chairs are made with 1 1/4 ” stock. I wanted strong chairs that would take a bit of punishment as they all do. All the pieces where stained with Rez exterior oil stain prior to assembly and again afterwards. With the lounge cushions they make quite comfortable loungers as well.

Awesome, it looks like it is about to start driving itself :)
Just a thought, i think it would look even better if the white part of the wheels were painted red like the rest

The chairs and foot rests are very nicely done and it looks like they are facing a beautiful view (photo 2). I really like the wheel idea it can be a real back saver. I don’t know of any wooden outdoor furniture that doesn’t benefit from regular preventive maintenance.
