This garden chair and bench were originally designed as projects for novice woodworkers.
The chair and bench set would look good in any garden.
Made out of mostly 140mm x 35mm (1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″) wood, they are very solid and deep with decent size arm rests. You can laze back and do whatever you do when you sit in such a seats.

Wood sizes and sourcing the materials

Three different size woods are used in this project. They are:
North America (standard):
1-1/2″x5-1/2″, 1-1/2″x7-1/2″, and 3-1/2″x3-1/2″ treated Lumber.
Australasia (metric):
140mm x 35mm, and 190mm x 35mm, and 90mm x 90mm treated timber.
There is also a bit of 25mm x 25mm (1″x1″) strip required.
At the time of writing some Lowes stores in North America stocked 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and 1-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ Pressure Treated Lumber in 8ft, 12ft, and 16ft lengths.
Bunnings in Australia stocked 140mm x 35mm and 190mm x 35mm treated timber in various lengths up to 6 meters long.
90mm x 90mm (3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″) should be available in most places
