My next big project. It is stronger than appears.

Whew! Non-mortised butt joints held together with screws/dowels? Hmmm. I don't think I'd recommend my brother (6'4" 320 lbs) sit in it. Best wishes with it, as it looks comfortable.

How about one of these.

I usually don't use templets, and indeed I modified this one (got the templet as a birthday present). I've built one out of Ipe and very pleased with it, so I bought more wood and am making two more. Very comfortable and very heavy.
