    my missus also likes it and we are in the position of needing some seating as I just finished building 30 square meters of decking. If you can post a link to the cushions that would be great :)

    Been working away but got an hour or so in this evening to get the Chair frame built, being the 3rd frame I got it down to 30 mins from start to a welded up chair

    for those who are asking here is a link to the cushions we ordered:

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rattan-F...var=541724066743&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    I'll post a link for the decking once its delivered and I am happy with it but would say shop around locally to avoid shipping which can be significant.

    Flattened all the external welds in my lunch break today. Actually took longer than I thought, kept spotting ones I missed! I used my Dewalt flex volt grinder and managed it on two batteries and 4 flap discs. Covered all the welds in some galvweld. Waiting on the decking delivery which hopefully will turn up today so can get the brackets for it attached then the frames will be ready for paint.

    Decking turned up, working away at the moment I'm told it flexes over the span of the 3 seater. This is why I was waiting for it before finishing the frames to see how much support they will need. Will probably go with 2x 20mm box supports equally spaced for the base seat.

    This looks the nuts!

    What is it with women and expensive stuff?
    I need more welding practice...I might be making some garden furniture. That SketchUp would be awesome

    back from working away got the boards cut up, its weird stuff that composite decking cut perfectly clean like wood in the chop saw but the dust was more like fluff floating up in the air.

    Then got all the brackets cut up for the boards and welded on, first coat of paint will go on this evening after tea.

    Waiting for some stainless fixings to attach the boards to be delivered so used an hour this evening to knock up a matching coffee table with the scraps left over. I had to join a few lengths together and adopt a different leg design as i had no more 40x40 but it looks in keeping.

    The decking boards look good against the white.

    Looks like the dog has a right face on him in the second picture. Clearly not a fan of the new furniture :laughing:

    Nothing more rewarding than properly using something you built yourself
