Our client had expensive cushions custom made for the two love seats they had on their patio. The seats were made inexpensively in Central America and after some time, they began to fall apart. I redesigned a bit for strength and chose Sepele as my wood specie. I used a domino joiner, Titebond 3 (glue) and finished with Teak Oil. They will re-oil each fall before covering the seats for winter. Best finish for least upkeep.

I was surprised to see how well it worked with those pillows too. That domino joiner really came into it’s own on this project / love that tool though it IS kinda pricey.
Thanks all, for your feedback…. Feels good when others (who understand woodworking) notice your work.
