These are for a client and his wife. The man is 6’2” and his wife is 5’7”. One of the chairs seats is a couple inches shorter than the other and both are some of the most comfortable chairs I’ve made to date. The back is pitched perfectly.
I’m going to start on the 18”x24” table they ordered in a few minutes, which can be made entirely from scrap from the chairs.

Jolly good show Russ, adjusting chairs to the persons height is very important for comfort.

Nicely done—definetly my favorite lawn chair and great of you to compensate for differences in the height of their new owners as it really does make a big difference in comfort.

Beautiful set of chairs and table, look really sturdy and comfy. Like that they are customized according to the height of the owners. Great job!

Fishinbo, thanks. One of the things that sets my chairs apart from other sold in the area, especially by the Amish, is that I use cedar and they are switching to yellow pine. We’ll see who’s chair looks good next year.
