Bob

to post a pic here for the first time so bare with me. It worked easy!!! Made from white oak and used Cabots Australian Out Back Oil in Honey Teak, it was real is to apply, now have to wait to see how long it will last, but an easy refinish I think when needed to, just a light sanding and wipe some more on.

That turned out well, especially considering you only had a single dimension to begin with. One down, five to go?

It looks great, Bob. It’s got good proportions and style. How does it sit ?

Now you can sit and overlook the neighborhood.

Chris, this is what I had, but did not print out to any scale on my Arcitechs scale, but was more then enough to work with. I changed a couple dimensions. I was more interested in a plan with a cut list, out of laziness, but worked it out myself, 20 brd ft with just about zero scrap.

It sits real nice!!!! the seat is a 5 angle, back has a 22 angle to the seat, 17* from horizontal. Seat depth is 18 1/4” in the center and curves to 17 1/2” at the sides.
Thanks for the kudos.
Bob

That s what the idea was, I have a raised veranda/deck in my back yard that has a 42” high top rail that is made from 2×6 and horizontal rails below made from the same. Well if you sit in a normal height chair your looking at the rails.
