Dave the Dog created this amazing railway sleeper 'throne' inspired by the unique furniture of Charles Rennie Macintosh (1868 - 1928).

We are often sent pictures from people who have built wonderful looking tables and chairs, and this beautiful settee from a Norwegian customer is no exception. A lovely design. For those who want to try something similar, make sure you use railway sleepers that are not treated with tar or creosote. For more projects see:
