For a number of years I have crafted and sold curved seat backless benches but recently clients have requested the same bench but with a back. The above is my prototype and with minor changes this will be added to outdoor furniture I already offer. This bench is 42” long and made of scrap pine that I had in the shop.

The production bench will be crafted using cypress and stainless steel fasteners. Starting off the benches will only be offered in 46” and 58” lengths as seating pads are more easily found for those sizes.

Great design. The variation in board width ties the back and seat together nicely.

Thanks for all the kind comments.

I am somewhat concerned with the angle of the back and how far the back should be set back from the seat for taller people. Can any LJ chair builders give me some direction as to angles to maximize comfort or a source which might point me in that direction?
