Our church wanted some chairs to set out on the back deck so I had a bunch of treated 2x’s so I put this double together. I’m probably going to build at least one more.
I hope you enjoy

This looks comfortable enough for a afternoon nap. Nice work.

They do look comfortable, is that a padded headrest? Where did you find the plans?

Looks inviting. The headrest thing is new to me, is that a twist I just hadn’t seen, or are you breaking ground in Outdoor Furniture design?

Steven, The headrest is a brain fart that occurred when I sat in the chair. It is covered in a soft leather and I stuffed the box that I built behind it with firm styrofoam .
Jack, I copied the idea off of some Adirondack chairs I saw and took pictures of . Major changes, due to the design of this chair, but that’s where it started.
Thanks for the opinions.
