This is a chair I built from a combination of two by four’s and one by four’s (hence the title). It’s a great beginner project as it can all be done with a circular saw and a driill.

great looking chair. the 2×4s and 1×4s cleaned up nicely and you’ve added a very nice finish. The wood plugs add a nice detail that bring the look above and beyond a construction lumber built chair. great idea.

You built a very nice chair Oliver. I would not have cut out the seat slats for the tops of the front legs to come through, but you followed the original design and that is a matter of style and not your work which looks very good.

Looks great! Would look even greater on my porch: Would love a few more images showing the construction beneath and at the back- perhaps wit some basic measurements.

Great work
