Wood Chair Plans
The first step of the woodworking project is to build the back and front legs. Mark the cut lines on the 2×4 slats and get the job done in a professional manner, by using a circular saw.
Smooth the cut edges with sandpaper in order to get the job done in a professional manner. Cut the front legs out of 2×2 lumber after taking accurate measurements. Work with attention and invest in high-quality materials.
Continue the project by fitting the seat supports to the back and to the front legs. Cut the supports out of 1×3 lumber and drill pocket holes at both ends. Align the supports with great care and secure them into place with 1 1/4″ screws, after making sure the corners are right-angled.
Top Tip: Plumb the legs with a spirit level and make sure the supports are perfectly horizontal before inserting the screws.
The next step of the project is to attach the supports to the back legs of the wooden chair. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the supports, after cutting them at the right size, and secure them to the legs with 2 1/2″ galvanized screws.
Cut the supports at the right size, making sure you use 1×2 lumber. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the components and secure them to supports with 1 1/4″ galvanized screws. Add waterproof glue to the joints.
In order to get the job done in a professional manner, we recommend you to build the seat out of 3/4″ plywood, making sure you pay attention to the instructions described in the article. Drill pocket holes through the supports and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the seat.
One of the last steps of the woodworking project is to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-grit sandpaper.
Top Tip: If you want to enhance the look of the woodworking project and to protect the table from decay, we recommend you to cover the components with paint or stain. Place the chair in a proper location and move it whenever necessary.
