A neighbor asked me to make these for his grandparents for Christmas a few years ago. The grandparents enjoyed sitting on their patio, but were starting to have difficulty because of joint and back problems. The grandfather is over 6 feet tall and had a hard time getting up from “normal” height chairs, so his has a taller seat. The grandmother is barely over 5 feet tall and had a hard time getting into “normal” height chairs, so hers has a lower seat.
They are made completely out of cedar, with most edges chamfered. The back legs have a slight taper for the back slats, and the chairs are actually quite comfortable. They wanted the natural cedar color, so I just finished them with an outdoor sealant (Thompson’s I think) that they promised to reapply every year or two.
