This is an order that came in at Christmas, but not for Christmas. So I had a couple extra days to build them.

The bench is 52” wide x 30” deep x 36” tall. Different design on bench than I have used before.

The chair and end table I have posted before.

I am currently working on a different method to build wheels.

Thanks for looking

Being outdoor furniture, these are made of pressure treated pine. The finish is Cabot Australian Timber Oil, Jaharra brown. Although I like the look of the color, this is notorious for uneven color when dry. I need to spend more time trying to perfect it, or maybe switch to a different stain. Just haven’t found another color I like as well.

Monte that looks awesome, what about making a glider for your next one? I’ve seen them real similar to the one you made only they hang from chains.

I like the wheel design. The rocker looks kinda like a wheelchair! LOL What does that treated pine look like with just some Spar?
