The plans come from wood magazine ,JULY 2008. Built all from reclaimed lumber. It sure made it cutting the mortice’s a lot easier with the Legacy woodworking machine. First the back rail was suggested to cut a grove the full length of top and bottom , I made the change to use mortice & tenon joints as shown . All the tenons are 1 1/2 long and 1” W. Then after all assembled I drilled two 1/4 holes in each tenon and drove a 1/4 ” dowel to hold it joint secure.
Finished with cedar deck stain and linseed oil, sealed the bottom of the foot with rubber spray, prevent moister from getting up in to the wood while sitting on dirt.
First project I made out of pine, now I know the reason I don’t use pine for the furniture I build, pitches up saw blades and sanding belts. Think it would sell for $300.00 or less.
