Ringing in at no less than $1065 before cushions, how’s a girl going to get the sleek style and contemporary comfort of wood outdoor lounge chairs like Restoration Hardware’s Belevedere Chair?  I see it two ways. You can dream about it. Or you can DIY it. With the help of my friend Shane today, I am so excited to introduce plans for a more contemporary outdoor lounge chair. This chair fits the Restoration Hardware Belvedere Cushions, some colors on sale right now.   And Shane, who built and photographed this chair – thank you! – also has plans for a matching coffee table up at her site, Old Paint Design.  Make sure you stop over and say thanks and check out more plans. And of course, the step by step plans to make this chair follow.

I have a few outdoor chairs made from scrap. There have been failures. The failures have always been at a point where there are knots in the wood, usually pretty large ones. This makes sense, because the grain is discontinuous, and the strength of wood comes from the grain structure.

I have a few outdoor chairs made from scrap. There have been failures. The failures have always been at a point where there are knots in the wood, usually pretty large ones. This makes sense, because the grain is discontinuous, and the strength of wood comes from the grain structure. So buy only clear boards for making chairs. If it’s got knots, it stays at the store or lumber yard. That probably means you’re going to have to buy Select & Better lumber, which costs more. But having a chair turn to scrap is more expensive in both time and materials.
