  Outdoor furniture for your leisure side of life - 

Welcome to: 

Sunset Palms Designs Workshop.

First clear coat layer applied. Now I gotta sand and apply again and again.

My new chair to be displayed at Outdoor Accent's of Florida on Tyrone Blvd. in St. Petersburg. This chair is called "The Wave" waiting for a final sanding and then sealer to really bring out the Cypress wood color.

Working on a new project...A small table that can be used for either eating at or playing cards or whatever other idea you may have for it. Here, I am gluing two halves together to make one table top. Going to clear coat it and stain the tabletop Sedona Red.


Wine box serving tray. The floor is from a wine box and the sides are cedar. Ordered some rustic vintage rusted iron handles. Glue drying, waiting to be stained and sealed.

The Rustic Movement:

Lately I have been venturing into pallet wood furniture, accessories and wall art. Lots of wall art. and almost anything can be built from pallet wood. It's is usually cedar or a hardwood. This seems to be growing crave now. Old and Rustic looking.

New item: This is a wooden crate for storage that is mobile on casters. Crates face each other and are connected using a piano hinge on back. Can be configured in any way.

This is a portable barbeque cabinet/cart. Here it is with feet, but can easily be modified with casters for easy rolling or can be wall mounted.

A nice table with red cedar inlay at the ends and stripes in the table top.

Here is the making of a "Door Hall Tree"

First: you need a door

then you lightly sand it to expose some of the wood grain. Then stain it and then apply your paint (s)

I chose an aqua blue/green and a grey white for accent. Then build a box for storage and seating and finally accessorize it with a shelf, hooks and stuff.


These are my (Stout) garden chairs. They are made from Western Red Cedar. These are slightly oversized for comfort. They have a contoured seat for added comfort and a slight back lean on the back rest. The arm rests are Adirondack style for roominess, comfort, and ample room to support your coffee, drink or plate.

The small tables in photo are also Cedar and measure 17" x 17" x 17"...plenty of room for snacks and a pitcher of lemonade.
