Here is one of the new chairs I’m building for our new fire pit. They are made out of four pressure treated 2×6s (and one 2×4), and have a comfortable 18” seat depth, 19” seat width, and 110 degree angle for the backrest.

More information, and a link to our plans are located on our blog,

I like the design and it looks solid enough to hold even my chubby butt, ( still swollen from my very recent hip replacement ). LOL. Mike

looks very attractive. What joinery are you using for all those butt joints?

Thank you gentlemen.

Jgtb, I used tongue and groove joinery on the back and sides where they attach cross grain. I know wood movement could be a problem over time, but I couldn’t come up with a better way which i still found attractive.

For the seat, I just cut a 3/4” rabbet into the top of the 2nd side board so they are free floating.
