Patio Furniture


My first attempt at patio furniture. I built these over the past couple of weeks.

They look very sturdy. How is the angle with the back? Many plans don't take the natural comfort into consideration. Good work! Dorf Dude

Patio Furniture


Mostly I just looked at pictures and figured them out. I built the chairs first as they were a little more straight forward then built the rocker. The back angle on the rocker isn't quite as much as the chairs. The footstools will sit three different ways, depending on how you want your legs to sit. In the photos, they are just sitting on a block that is attached to the front brace.

They are a little lumber intensive, mostly milled 2*6 dimensional, but then my family always accuses me of building stuff "hell for stout".

I cut templates for all the curved pieces so I could reproduce them if I wanted to build some more.
