    My first project

    This was my first two furniture projects before the toy box. They're constructed of cypress fence boards and 2x12's for the arms. I finished them with epifanes varnish and some sunbrella cushions from target.

    I thought it was pretty neat to be able to make some nice screen porch furniture out of fence boards. It was definitely good practice on mortise and tenons. Not to mention using and sharpening chisels.
