the chair and table were easy to assembly with the help of a power drill. They came in a white cedar witch looked good but I stained them with American walnut to match my deck. Iam very happy with the results. I am going to order another chair to make a set. I would recommend a light sanding before staining
Pros: Looks Great, Comfortable, Easy to Assemble, Good Size & Weight, Looks High End, High Quality of Material, Sturdy
Love these chairs! We bought four of them! They look amazing sitting around the fire pit and are also very comfortable. We will stain them and believe that will give them a longer life! The quality is great as is the value! You will need to be somewhat "handy" to assemble them and also have your power tools ready.
I love the fact that this chair is made of cedar...wish it was red cedar instead of white but still smells wonderful! This item was shipped FAST & FREE! This is a very sturdy chair and should last a very long time. I like the size of it as I am not a tiny woman it really holds me well and the seat room is perfect...very comfortable width-wise, though I did purchase a seat cushion for more comfort and cushiness. The only thing I didn't like about putting it together was the fact that there was much more sanding than I would have liked (done all by hand) and the screw holes are not pre- drilled (NO pilot holes), I had to figure out what angle and exactly where to drill them in, though the instructions mention nothing about needing a drill. It seemed somewhat unreasonable, to me anyway, for a 60 year-old woman to be drilling in fourteen 2" screws by hand into cedar wood without at least a pilot hole! When it is all said and done and after some minor frustration I am very happy with this purchase! I didn't leave the wood natural but added two coats of Thompson's Cedar Tint Water Seal for a BEAUTIFUL finish! A new coat of the Thompson's maybe every year or two for upkeep and maintenance and I should have this chair for a VERY LONG TIME!
Pros: Sturdy, Looks Great, Durable, Comfortable, Looks High End, very roomy for a large person
Cons: somewhat difficult to assemble, no pilot holes for screws

This is a well made unfinished product. Can be used as is straight from the box. However, with some elbow grease and sealer, it gets alot better. Bought the first piece to check it out, after seeing got 2 porch swings and another chair. I am a woodworker, definitely a yes!

Some of the logs had pretty noticeable splits in them, but we assembled and the splits don't seem to affect structure. Fairly easy assembly, however a screw gun was needed to drive some of the hardware.
