2×4 Outdoor Chair Plans

Ovidiu 0 FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites List YOUR FAVORITES GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step-by-step woodworking project is about 2×4 outdoor chair plans. I have designed this 2×4 outdoor chair to match the backyard sofa project. If you choose to build this outdoor set, you will have a really sturdy chair for a super small price. You only have to buy outdoor cushions to make the seating area comfortable.

Align the wooden components at both hand before driving in the screws. Don’t forget to pre-drill holes in the components, as to prevent the wood from splitting. Moreover, don’t forget to countersink the head of the screws, before inserting the wooden screws. Last but not least, apply a good wood filler in the holes, let it dry out properly and sand the surface thoroughly with 120-grit sandpaper, before applying the final coats of stain.

2×4 Outdoor Chair Plans

Assembling the sides of the outdoor sofa

Assembling the sides of the outdoor sofa

First of all, you have to build the sides of the 2×4 outdoor chair. Cut all the components from 2×4 lumber, at the dimensions shown in the plans. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the 31″ long supports and secure them to the legs with 2 1/2″ screws. Drill pilot holes and secure the armrests into place with 2 1/2″ screws. Make sure the corners are right angled, using a carpentry square.

Assembling the frame of the chair

The next step of the project is to install the front and the back 2×4 aprons. Smooth the cut edges with a sand-block. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the aprons, to hide the screws and the joints. Use a spirit level to align the components. Make sure the corners are right-angled.

Fitting the seat supports

Afterwards, you have to install the supports for the seat slats, as you should notice in the image. Secure the cleats to the frame of the 2×4 outdoor couch with pocket holes and 2 1/2″ screws.

Fitting the seat slats

Fitting the seat slats

Attach the 2×4 slats to the seat frame of the sofa. Cut the slats at 22 1/2″ and then place them equally spaced. Cut a wood block at 1 3/4″ to create even gaps between the slats. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock the slats to the cleats.

Fit the 2×4 trim to the top of the back walls. Align the edges with attention, drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws.

Building the back slats

Building the back slats

After building the main frame of the 2×4 outdoor chair, you should assemble the back support. Therefore, cut the slats from 2×4 lumber. Use a miter saw to make 20 degree bevel cuts to both ends of the slats. Drill pocket holes in the slats, in order to secure them into place. Check the corners for squareness, before driving in the screws.

Backrest slats

On of the most challenging steps of this project is to install the back support into place, as you need to be precise and level the components properly. Use 2 1/2″ screws to secure the slats to the backrest frame.

Fitting the side panels

Fitting the side panels

Use 3/4″ plywood for the side panels. Mark the cut lines on the panels and then get the job done with a saw. You can use your creativity and adjust my design. Attach the panel to the side frames and then secure them into place with 2 1/2″ brad nails and glue.

Fill the head of the screws with a good wood putty and let it dry out properly. Next, sand the wooden surface with 120-grit sandpaper, making sure there is a smooth transition between the patches and the rest of the wood.

Top Tip: Apply several coats of wood stain to protect the wood from rot. Buy cushions and lay them on the chair, to get the job done and to enhance the comfort of the seat.

This 2×4 outdoor chair is really easy to build and it is modular. You can easily customize or change the dimensions of the furniture. Make sure you take a look over the matching sofa and the side table.
