Great build. I made one change that made the chair a bit more sturdy in the arm rest area. Instead of using nails to attach the arm rests with the legs, I chose to attach 2 pieces of wood (on each side) of 3 x 2 1/4 with screws (pictures attached). It’s not visible from the top or sides of the chair and looks fine even when you squat down to look. This gave the arm rests a very sturdy hold to the legs. I used a piece of scrap from the 1×6 wood left over. Overall it’s a great looking chair and now I’m in trouble because the better half wants a second one and a matching table. I’m thinking stain/sealer to keep the wood grain look. What do you think? I have made a few, about 20 years ago. It is time to make a few more to my varenda. Looking at this specific project, I have the feeling that the arm was set way too high. Wonder how it deteriorates the general conform of the chair.
