This is one my dad made for me a few years ago. 2"x4" treated pine frame and slats that he had left over from a job. Kind of an updated and more comfortable version of a Viking chair. He patterned it after one he had seen somewhere. A little heavy. Think cypress or cedar would make a lighter version.

I don't think he used any finish. Just natural weathering of the treated lumber. I have it on my list too. I have some reclaimed cypress boards leftover from when I built my house. I'd like to build one out of it.

thanks. the cypress will look nice and also be lighter weight. I have some white oak drying in the shop I hope to use

Made something similar

Made some chairs similar to your design from cedar. The plans came from the Thompson Water Seal web page.


The cedar came from the beams of the deck of our home during one of our house remodels.

Have enough cedar for one more chair. Made three so far, just need the time.

Later,
Heggy
