Modern Patio Lounge Chairs

author-gravatar vcsg01 Jun 18, 2017

Just finished up our backyard patio area so naturally we need some lounge chairs for drinks around the fire. 

Started off with 4*4*8' cedar posts from lowes. 

Used my bandsaw to cut down into planks. 

Mitered side supports have floating tenons. 

Have to use my hand planes at least once on every project or why the hell did I spend so much on them. 

First seat finished! 

Before staining. 


In position.  In total I spend about a full weekend building these for around 65 bucks.

Did you work off a plan for this? These seem like a great alternative to the Adirondack chair. Not that I don't like Adirondack chairs, but the modern aesthetic puts a nice twist on outdoor furniture.
