That is gorgeous!

The color is great, nothing like a fresh finish on fresh wood for the outdoors.

Plenty of room on the arm rests for a cool tankard of ale.

Is that lawn real or astro turf? I’d never get any work done if I had to tend to something like that to keep it so lush 8^)

well when the beagle came she pretty much decided astro turf is what was needed.it was either that or use the yard as a moto cross track-lol.

Very nice Pottzy…........Those big arms can hold many beers…........ keep you in it for hours!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice work on the chair. I have been meaning to make one but I want it 4” higher than usual. The ones I sat in are so low I can’t hardly get out of them. They are comfortable when you get in them unless you under 5 ft I guess!

Cheers, buddy….................Jim
