With warm weather just around the corner, you’re probably looking for comfy outdoor chairs for your backyard. We’ve rounded up a few project plans for you to consider.
1. Kentucky Stick Chair
To get started, cut all the wood into the 1-1/4-in. by 1-1/2-in. “sticks” with a table saw or band saw. Rip the 2×4 lengthwise to a width of 1-1/4-inches. Since a 2×4 is actually 1-1/2-in. deep, you’re good there. Then cut the various pieces to the length indicated on the attached chart. Drill holes where indicated to make room for connecting rods. Sand the edges, and you’re ready for assembly.
2. Sling Chair
This sling chair is a great option if you’ve got some woodworking skills. Its sling design makes it comfortable, and it looks inviting! While you won’t need many tools or materials for this one, you will need patience. It’s a weekend project, not a “one day” one.
3. Classic Patio Chair
4. Portable Patio Chair
If a portable patio chair is more your speed, I have you covered. This intermediate level project can be completed in one day. I love this chair because it’s so easy to bring anywhere you might need a comfy seat. Whether it’s a parade, a beach day or a backyard bonfire, this chair will fit all your needs.
5. Adirondack Chair
6. Danish Chair
If you’re ready to take on a more advanced project, I suggest my Danish modern chair. It’s a rewarding challenge that will leave you with a beautiful and comfy piece. It doesn’t require a lot of tools, so you probably already have everything you need already on hand except the raw materials.
