It is a prototype made of pine and is awesome. I made it with 12.5 degree cuts. The front boards are cut special to fit. The back has 2 crossings for the boards and a flat middle. It is beautiful to have indoors or outdoors. It is very comfortable for 2 people that want to sit and talk because of how the angles turn the 2 people toward each other. It also allows, the chatters, to face the beautiful nature which makes it great for facing a window or a lake. I made it by using an old bench as a template that was nearly completely rotted apart. It only costs $25 to make!

I like the design, but I think it’s too wide a front piece. I think many of us swing our legs back underneath, so it will get the calf muscle.

Well the front piece is only that large to make it stable because it is the only support laterally, side to side not front back. It is kind of a bench where you have so sit in it to feel how it’s made. The seat is kind of short which keeps your knees and calves out away from the board.

Interesting. At first glance I thought you had made a bench version of the “kentucky stick chair”.

Like the original design, the two seats are angled so that 2 people can face and talk to each other. A great addition to the porch or yard. Awesome job!
