Nothing like the soft feel of pine when your working with it. I really like your arches on the arms. Did you cut them out of a 2×12 or did you have to bend some wood?

2×8 was wide enough for the arms.

Nice touch on the one-piece arms. And with the number of attachment points, this looks pretty stable long term.
