Perfect Lounge Chairs

Submitted by BJ D on Fri, 07/20/2012 - 08:24

This was a very straightforward and easy build. As soon as they were compled, I wanted a dining table and chairs to coordinate.

These chairs were intended to be used without cushins (is there anything better than laying out on a warm lounge chair when stepping out of the pool?) so I recessed the hinge completely below the deck.

They were cut adn assembled in two evenings after the little one went to sleep.

As you can see, my daughter and her friend approve.

I ended up adding some additional support under the outsides of the corners. I glued and nailed a small block to the front and back and pocket screwed it to the inside boards for additional strength.
