Project Information

I have been working on this chair for a couple of weeks now. I first saw this design in Wood magazine many, many years ago and loved it. I finally got around to building it. The painted parts are redwood and the bright wood is western red cedar. Finished with General Finishes milk paint, and Outdoor Oil. Relatively easy project, not sure why it took me so long to get around to it. As you can see it is granddaughter approved.

Nice chair! It looks very comfortable, and I like the painted/non-painted aspect of it.

I'm not usually a fan of paint but I really like the contrast between the paint and the cedar. Nice job. And granddaughters always approve of grandpa's work!

Bondo,
Great job! I think they turned out great. I was wondering if you would be able to tell me how to get a hold of those plans? I know you said they were in Wood magazine, but can you still find them there? I have been looking for a set of plans for some chairs like these for a while and I really like these.
Thanks

Bondo, excellent project, well done!

The color is perfect, it's a Total A Project. Favoriting this one, it's 'on the list.' :)
