But now I have something.
We bought some cheapo plastic adirondack chairs for the front porch. Now while they work, I would prefer something I built. I searched and found some plans on FamilyHandyman.com
The plans called for pressure treated lumber, but since it would live it's life on the front porch I used common pine and sealed/stained it with deck seal.
Note: I used Behr Deck Stain for this. Just bought a quart. Having now experience with ReadySeal for my deck and Behr for the chair....hands down ReadySeal is the champ. The Behr was harder to keep drips and excessive brush fulls from splotching or leaving marks. So if you have to stain a deck, get ReadySeal.
