    very interesting. Is it because a higher back creates more of a tendency to tip back? Chair geometry fascinates (reads 'eludes') me.

    I say either choose a wood that does not require a finish (preferred) or use an oil finish that can be refreshed every year (read, every couple years).

    Also, I try to build outdoor furniture that...

    James,
    Do you own the Veritas shooting plane? IMHO, a better investment is to put that money into buying the plane and then build your own shooting board.

    I own that plane and it's IMHO a great...
