This step by step diy project is about rustic large outdoor chair plans plans. If you want to enhance the look of your backyard, you should consider building a few chairs. Using my easy to follow plans you can build this chair and the matching table with minimum effort and basic tools. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.
