I agree with you plan but I would not use Pine. If your going to build something as a promotion it needs to be the best quality product you can make. I agree with using Ipe that will impress any perspective buyers. Ipe is a very solid wood that will hold up to weather for years and years and is even fire rated. I’ve built a good many decks from it and some super outdoor furniture. If you don’t what to spend the little bit of extra money on Ipe the Western red ceder,cypress or eastern cedar will do the job. I would stay away from port orford ceder it tends to split easily . If you build your sample chair cheep the customer will know and want to pay a cheep price. I know your from Missouri so you will build it the way you want LOL
