I have seen several of these posted on here in the past couple of months so I thought I’d throw in my 2 cents worth. Taken directly from Norm Abrams plans mine are made of pine but if you finish them correctly they will last a long time . In my opinion they are the most comfortable outdoor chairs I’ve ever sat in…............Thanks for looking…...........Schloemoe

So it’s a set of 3-chairs then? Looking good so far! How do you plan to finish them?

I hadn’t planned on putting a finish on the ones I’m going to sell. For my own I will be Painting them white .Traditionally they were all painted but I guess you could stain them also …............Schloemoe

I have built several of these following Norm’s plans. Most recently I have been using the composite decking material. Works great and no finishing required.

Look great! Did you find the plans on the internet? I am interested in building a set, but not sure if everyone free hands them or gets a pattern?
