I used rough cedar to build the patio set. I pre-sanded all pieces to smooth them out and sanded again at the end to limit any remaining splinters. I could not find cedar 2x2, so I ripped all 2x2 from 2x6 using the table saw.
The furniture is covered by our porch and we decided to leave it unfinished to let it weather naturally.
The plans were modified slightly to accommodate IKEA outdoor cushions.
I had some remaining wood, so I built a basic coffee table using some black iron hairpin legs from Amazon.
