Great Plans. I extended the back with an extra 1x10 and it works great being that I'm 6' 4". Also used a router to round the arms, front seat board, and the top back board. Just need to stain and waterproof for the patio.
I'm new to woodworking (besides home trim work). Your plans are great as is or for just getting started. I'm trying this out as a hobby for retirement (sometime in the next 5 years). Buying the equipment now as needed.
Thanks so much for the plans and videos.
