All of algarrobo (prosopis alba), kept with the crust edges to give a rustic feel. Simple and fun project to do with hand tools. Very comfortable. Not finished all natural wood. This wood has the particularity that it is exposed to the sun and take an orange, otherwise it is dark brown.

Pretty cool but I can’t believe these are comfortable. With the seat so low to the ground and being 6’8” tall, I would be kissing my knees if I sat in one of these.

Good point ohwoodeye! Try it and you will be surprised. I have a 6’8 “and I can do. Believe that support (They say so?) is prioritized here.’s Great fun for meeting with friends in the garden.

As rustic as it can be! That’s a true innovation.
