My first ever wood working project

Wood working is a hobby I got into because my wife realised I needed something to take my mind off my job. I worked in IT when I started and I was coming home frustrated, annoyed, and often angry. I think she had an ulterior motive because when I suggested wood working she seems to have come up with a bunch of projects pretty quickly from Pinterest.

My first real project these deck chairs which I really enjoyed making. I've made a couple of changes to these since making them by removing the bolts and replacing them with 20mm dowel with a 4mm dowel pin. These work really well and stops us from getting shredded by the bolts.

I purposely left unfinished because I was basically developing them at the time and then just kind of liked the look as they got older. Basically these chairs are now about 6 years old and still going strong.

I'm looking at making some more sets for friends.
