Hi Larry Fantastic photos and some great pieces of workmanship, Six of those pub style chairs would look great on my patio, If you could send me some measurements for the chairs. I would be more than grateful, Cheers
I buy Kiln dried preasure treated then Kiln dried again Yellow Pine, which is the hardest of the soft woods. I buy 5/4 "decking and rip it just under 1 3/4'' to get three Slats .
