Projects: Patio Furniture

The slats were a tad bit more complicated as I was determined to use some old cedar boards that we'd removed from one of our closet demolition projects. 

They had these handy tongue and groove sections that were perfect for fitting two boards together. No so handy creating bench slats, however. 
In the end, I ripped the protruding side off but left the grooved edge in place. 

This would come to haunt me later as I tried to drill holes through this narrow pieces. 

Major fail. 

So, the finished product is a little bit wobbly. Not so bad that someone would be dumped on the ground, though. 

And least I hope not.
