I'm guessing you've never worked with an aged hardwood. They can be easily restored and be better than buying new hardwood, let alone saving cost of new lumber and waste.

You always reuse hardwood if possible, just not necessarily for this particular project as the ends might need to be trimmed off and then the width of the chair would be too short. Wood in general right now is a rip-off thanks to the ~5 large milling corporations ****ing everyone over.

There is no doubt in my mind that most of that wood is still perfect to use with a planer and new edges.

Can still get nice hardwood in Australia, replace it with something to match the deck and you're all set

Ends painted grey then dry-brushed with some silver. Not the best photo.

The ends on many of the slats are damaged. One set had no timbers. Finished slats will be painted light grey - almost white to match existing decks. Won't see any nice wood with coats of paint on them. Would be nice to grit blast them all but haven't got time for that. Just outdoor furniture. Job will last 15-20 years.

Having seen some of Nmags model work that wouldn't be a suprise.

They will end up looking stunning if he is allowed to unleash on them

I've been working on timbers. The ends are painted. Grey with silver dry brush highlights. They don't show so well in that photo. Better image to come.

Timbers dry cut and sanded. Sitting in ends to check for sizing. You can paint H4 but it needs to be dry. They've been drying clamped so they cure straight for weeks.

Brown



Green



White



The dry brushed edges don't show up in the photos so well. Looks like lighting reflections on the edges. That's what they are supposed to be, but exaggerated with dry brushing silver on dark grey.

Slats drilled. Next is uniquely identify each slat so the id survives painting. Probably staged little 9 gauge model railroad tacks put in the end. Another light sand. Disassemble and get the paint. Green one needs a steel centre bar.

It's H4 rough sawn treated pine. Ground contact stuff. Light but nasty treatment - avoid contact / dust. Yes the overhang is longer than it should be on the older 2 chairs. I want it a bit longer as I'm expecting some end cracking on a couple as they come to the end of their curing. I should trim them before painting. Still some moisture in there. This whole step was pretty much around drilling those friggin holes in them all. Now I have to mark them and pull them apart.

3 x 2 person seats

Project brief is pretty much... Tidy up old chairs and paint them to match the painted timber deck which is a very light grey, almost white."
