How to build outdoor furniture
The first design you could choose when building outdoor furniture is a simple chair. As you can notice in the plans, these chairs would complement beautifully your garden, but they can also be used on your deck or patio. See a step by step guide about building an outdoor chair by clicking the link.
If you want to build a wooden chair, but you want an exquisite design that will impress the loved ones and will add value to your backyard, then an adirondack chair might suit your needs.
As you can notice in the plans, you need to use quality lumber (pine, cedar or redwood), otherwise the components won’t be resistant to moisture and will have a nice appearance. Click the link to see a detailed adirondack chair plans.
On the other hand, you should also take into account building a basic bench with a simple design. If you know the basic woodworking techniques, you could build this bench in no more than 3-4 hours. Adjust the size of the bench to your needs and always pre-drill the components before inserting the galvanized screws. Round the exposed edges with a router, if you want to enhance the look of the bench. See step by step garden bench plans, by clicking the link.
If you have a large backyard and you like to barbeque, a picnic table is something that shouldn’t miss from your inventory. A picnic table with benches is one of the easiest woodworking projects you could do by yourself, but you need to use proper plans. Learn how to build a wooden picnic table, by clicking the link.
A patio table is a must-have outdoor project, if you like to take dinner with your family and friends. Taking into account the simplicity of this woodworking project, you just need to follow the right instructions for your needs and invest in the best materials you could afford. Always add waterproof glue to the joints, in order to enhance the rigidity of the structure. Learn how to build a patio table, by checking out the full project.
If you have a large patio, deck or garden and you like to hang out with the loved ones during the weekends, we recommend you to build a wooden bar. Building an outdoor bar is a simple project and it also gives you the opportunity to adjust its designs and shape to your needs. Invest in quality materials and apply several coats of stain or paint to protect the components and to enhance the look of the bar.
Last but not least, you could build a garden bridge, if you have a stream in your backyard, or if you want to create something unique with your hands. As you can see in the image, a wooden bridge is a simple structure to which you have to attach simple railings. If you have enough space in your garden, a simple bridge will create a charming area.
