Step 1: Ratty Old Chair
Aquire an old chair.
Step 2: Naked Old Chair
Remove old torn cushions.
Step 3: Old Chair Anew
Using cedar fence boards.
-Cut each board to 22". (Fit the best at that size in between hand rests). Rounded all rough edges with a router and sanded by hand.
-Holes drilled through boards and chair frame. Used 1/4" carriage nuts and bolts to assemble everything. Drilled slightly larger holes for an easier fit.
-Same was done for the hand rests, except used a bandsaw to give them a better shape.
Step 4: Finnished
Sit outside and enjoy! Chair swivels and rocks. Also reclines.
