So what kind wood are you using? I think it would be a fun project but I hate sitting in them. My dad made a pair of Adirondack chairs and I didn't like to sit in them and I was a boy.

Design software with cut list report

:wink:I use "Sketchlist 3D" (check out SketchList dot com) to design or modify designs of furniture and other projects. It has an "Optimized Cut List" report that works really well.

I am a software cave man. If I cant see it and touch it, it aint real.
I tried sketchup twice, almost totalled the computer a similar number.

I dont honestly know the name of the timber, its just construction white wood.

Heres the one I made first, followed by a love seat to match.
These are very comfortable, I get compliments anytime someone sits in them.
I had to persuade this customer to sit in the chair, he was asking for cushions. Within 2 minutes of sitting in it he ordered two for himself.

Nice job. I find them comfortable to sit in but hard to get out of these days
