In winter I planned to make a viking style chair for the northern germany garden. Now, by chance, we’ve got a very pretty wooden bench and I don’t need another chair anymore.

It’s made from an oakwood scaffolding plank, 30 mm thick, sanded and with a carved and fire-branded uruz-rune. The finish is normal teak oil, 2 coats. The principle is easy and there are a lots of plans available on the internet – see the measurements here:
