A friend of mine wanted me to make her one. It’s a present from her husband for their anniversary. Made from cedar and finished with Thomsons Water Sealer. Now I’m getting a couple of orders to make more. Next spring I’ll have to see if I can sell a few more.

Yours turned out really nice. I have those plans, just no time to build one. :-(

You did a great job. My wife wants me to build two of these so she can put them together for big table. Where did you find the plans?

Build Easy. I changed things up some. The back stop I made so the table would hit a flat part instead of a pointed part. Use counter sink holes on all 3/8 holes to hide the nuts and bolts. The carriage bolts do not hold in the cedar so I used bolts. Leg extension part 2 should be 10 3/16 not 9 1/2. If you use 2×4 on all, seat board m is 59 1/4, k is 55 3/4, and l is 49 1/2. The arm pad you can make any size you want, just so it’s at least the size it shows. Have Fun!!
