These are our 1970's bouncy metal chairs. They have been painted so many times & the wood replaced.
My brother is a boat repair man and said to really get new long life, we had to use Teak wood.
This was super expensive but luckily he and the guy who had the wood worked out a trade. Lucky me!
I wanted to give these as a gift to my brother in law who has helped my parents immensely but he wouldn't take them.
So, on a trip for a visit, I told him
I had a project and needed his help.
I came clean they were actually for him.
However, he ended up doing most of the work!
Here is the progress.
