BTW, black locust, Robinia pseudoacacia is native and would be the second best choice for this use. Osage orange would be the best, but it is very hard to get.

White oak would be my choice. Elm has spiral grain and wants to twist and warp with moisture changes, and the moisture changes in outdoor furniture can be extreme.
