After finishing my cedar pergola, I had some left over cedar. So….. I built these two chaise longue’s. Still deciding what finish to put on them. The design is from Woodsmith magazine #45 from June of 1986. There were a couple of length errors in the design and also was a bit dated in the processes but overall I am pleased with the results. The author used Redwood and I am not sure how that compares to Cedar. Cedar seems to be a bit soft for some things as it dents easy so time will tell how these hold up.
