Here at The Cedar Mitten we craft custom cedar furniture (and other things, but that's another blog!). The design basis is familiar ~ the lower peninsula of the great state of Michigan. There are similar pieces available, but allow me to point out some methods to note and/or compare.
We begin with 1"-1 1/2" rough sawn lumber. This gets run through the planer to a new dimension of 13/16" - yes, a touch heavier than 3/4" !! We have seen other chairs made with fence cedar ~ barely 1/2".
We are frequently accused of over-building our creations. Whether a shanty, gun rack or furniture, we build to last and survive much use. The Cedar Mitten actually puts 4-on-the-floor; four vertical legs support the sloping side rails to transfer load to the ground. Also, we install 3 braces to support the back of the chairs; 2 of which are actually screwed to the side supports
Our furniture pieces are a classic addition to your seating needs. Thank you for visiting!
