5/4 western red cedar is a good solid wood. I could use 2×4 in the frame. The seat slats need to be stronger than 1×2 cedar though, it will get kids jumping on it and stuff. I’ll just use the 5/4. My TS is groaning down in the shop.

I never use treated wood. The 5/4’s I get are untreated and when you sand them with some 60 grit they look beautiful. I’m going to give them several coats of spar.
