Saw a fellow LJ do one of these the other day. I didn’t do any halflaps like he did and it only took about 6 hours to complete. 10 2×4x8 red cedar. Lag bolts are 3.5 inches long. It’s heavy and solid. I may rework a few parts of this design on the next one. I want to see how this one sells first.
Pine would be half the cost or lower. It’s debatable if pine is better seeing I recommend my customers paint the outdoor furniture instead of staining and sealing, unless they have a sheltered location for the furniture.
If this sells, I may just order a skid of 2×4’s and make up a bunch and try and wholesale them.
