This step by step woodworking project is about bog chair plans. If you want to build a simple but impressive chair for your backyard, make sure you take a look over these plans. This chair is ideal for picnics or for trips with the friends in the nature. My plans come with step by step instructions and you can easily adjust all the dimensions to suit your needs. See my other DIY projects HERE.
We recommend you to invest in the best materials you could afford. Therefore, you should buy weather-resistant lumber, such as pine or cedar. Always take accurate measurements before adjusting the size of the components at the proper size. Drill pilot holes trough the components before inserting the wood screws, to prevent the wood from splitting.

Build a wood bog chair
First, build the main components of the bog chair. Mark the cut lines on the slat and then get the job done with a saw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper and make sure everything is straight.
Mark the cut lines on the rest of the 2×12 slat and get the job done with a circular saw and with a jigsaw. Smooth the edges clean. If you want to enhance the look of the project you could round over the exposed edges, using a router and a 1/4″ bit.
Make sure you smooth the components with 120-220 grit sandpaper and then apply a few coats of stair or paint to enhance the look of the bog chair. Seal everything with a few coats of clear lacquer.
This bog chair is nothing else than a great project to impress your friends and family. You can disassemble the chair easily and transport it or store it. If you like my project, don’t forget to SHARE it on Facebook and Pinterest.
