Large Outdoor Double Chair Bench Plans

This step by step woodworking project is about large outdoor double chair bench plans. This wood project is ideal for your backyard, if you want to have both a comfy chair and a very useful table. You can easily adjust the dimensions and the design of the project, so you match it with the style of the rest of your backyard furniture. 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.
