New Log Seats for our Deck
The vision for the new deck was to have some seating on it.

Chairs were being thrown about by the wind .. so we used some logs from the firewood pile!

(I wrote about it on our sister site:  Homesteadian.com)

We like it!

Another task off the list.

maybe find some round cushions ?
I don't think those will blow away!!!  Nice!
You really take “pull up a stump” literally!
Nice!

The early bird gets the worm but its the second mouse that gets the cheese.

I second the ‘cushions’ statement!

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

Good idea re: cushions but since we couldn’t keep chairs from blowing away, we’d have to nail down cushions. 

The wood was fine. We sat out there for about half an hour looking at the woodpile yet to be stacked. 😳

Funny thing - the pile never got any smaller, the whole time we looked at it

I’ve got it Ms. Debbie: padded pants. Have cushion, will travel!!

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

Now that I can agree with. 
My padding works just fine!!

Just nail them to the stump... Oh yeah, if no-one mentioned... now just be careful of nails.

With this "roundabout", we may just have a tornado and may need to see if that new deck is still there.

PS. How'd you get that trolley up the steps?

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

Now,  if you could add a back and rocking rails on the bottom you'd be ready for a tall glass of your favorite beverage...(tequila) 

Figuring out how to do something you have never done is what makes a good challenge.

I have a few of those around, two different heights. I'm tall, wife isn't, had to make some shorter so her feet would touch the ground easier. lol. Good job !!!   Mike
Thanks everyone.

Splintersnails … my goodness, so many things to worry about!

I love the rocker idea. Hmmm
Oh, Rick!!!

The trolly: we only took it up to the bottom of the stairs and then flipped the wood onto the first step and the again onto the second etc.
The stairs part was easier to navigate than the sliding it across the deck was!

Height: one of ours is taller than the other but, it turns out that the short one is too short … it might be getting switched out. Thank goodness it was a relatively easy job.
