I would NOT use “treated” pine. I think many people would be concerned about the potential contamination from the treatment process.

Why not use either cypress or Eastern Red Cedar (heartwood only)? Both would be very good weathering the outdoor environment and both would be quite attractive with a clear finish.

I would use 5/4 for all parts except the legs and support frame, that I’d use 7/4 or thicker.

Good Luck!
