Made a Chair today

The machete works well for peeling the bark. Bugs will infest any wood with the bark left on.

Priya helped by carving down the ends. 

Make a square end to drive into a round hole. As the large piece shrinks, the hole will also shrink, making the construction tight.
Best practice is to use dry wood for the horizontal railings.

Empty rice hulls in a feed sack make a nice cushion.

Total cost, about 3 hours of pleasant labor and a couple nails.
