This was a project I saw in one of the magazines I get and decided to make it. Super comfortable. I added an extra slat for the seat near the back for better support and sanded it down to fit my tailbone better. Used about 70 screws, but plugged each one with my plug maker by Rockler. It eventually stripped out the collar but they sent me a new one with no questions asked.

Updated the pix with the finish for the chair.

Looks very nice, are you going to clear coat it or paint it?

I also added an extra slat. It is a very comfortable chair, even if it is difficult getting out of it. Very neat work, evenly spaced. As Vince asked: What kind of finish??

Sorry, I didn’t notice the comments. Yes, the finish was stained by the guy I gave it to. After a light gray stain, he applied a few coats of polyurethane. The day I gave it to the guy as a surprise, he gave me a special sailfish mailbox also a surprise.
