We Make Our Own Furniture Here
The warmer weather definitely has me thinking about patio season. It has been a long and cold winter here in Edmonton, Alberta. As I’m preparing for patio season, I’m taking stock of what we have already for furniture. What I see, is what I hate. Some crappy “wicker” furniture from Home Depot that just looks like junk now. So that had me thinking that we need to make our own furniture, something that will last.
While there is a little bit of a lull between commissions, I finally got the opportunity to build what you see below. A love-seat and table. I’m planning to add to the set, adding two chairs and a table to complete the set. The design is simple and I cannot take credit for it. I used some simple yet beautiful plans from Jamison over at Rogue Engineer. I’ve been following Jamison since I started and he’s a stand up guy, has a great site and very personable. I encourage you to check him out. I’m still working on my design “muscle” and while I only have a few original designs, I plan on having more in the future.
What I like most about this design and what I’m trying to achieve is the quality going into this project. As I eluded to earlier, I’m not interesting in buying crap, and I certainly don’t build crap. The material used is Cedar which naturally weathers well and is perfect for outdoor construction. Couple that with the fact someone is hand making this and not mass producing it, you’ve got some quality furniture.
