Introduction
This garden chair is an extremely simple design and is probably one of the easier chairs to construct.

Building this garden chair merely requires that you cut and drill all the pieces of lumber according to the detailed plans provided and then assemble all the pieces.

Once all the lumber pieces have been cut and the holes marked and drilled, simply line up the holes in the various pieces (according to plan), place the bolts in the holes and the chair frame will take shape automatically!

Below is a drawing of every different piece of wood used in this project and a cross-section drawing showing all the pieces in place. Each drawing shows angle cuts, dimensions and the placement of any bolt holes.

To help you even further, the drawings are followed by further explanation, information about lumber sizes and notes regarding measurements.

All the individual pieces
garden chair pieces
[a] Front leg. 90x45 (1 1/2"x 3 1/2") stock. Cut 2 pieces as per plan above.
b] Rear leg. 90x45 (1 1/2"x 3 1/2") stock. Cut 2 pieces as per plan above.
[c] Back support. 90x45 (1 1/2"x 3 1/2") stock. Cut 2 pieces as per plan above.
[d] Seat support. 90x45 (1 1/2"x 3 1/2") stock. Cut 2 pieces as per plan above.
[e] Armrest support. 90x45 (1 1/2"x 3 1/2") stock. Cut 2 pieces as per plan above.
[f] Common slats. 90x20 (3/4"x 3 1/2") stock. Cut 6 pieces as per plan above.
[h] Front seat slat. 90x20 (3/4"x 3 1/2") stock. Cut 1 piece as per plan above.
[i] Arm rest. 90x20 (3/4"x 3 1/2") stock. Cut 2 pieces as per plan above.

Altogether you will need 6.6 meters (22ft) of 90x45 (1 1/2"x 3 1/2") stock and 6 meters (20ft) of 90x20 (3/4"x 3 1/2") stock.

You will also need 10 galvanized carriage bolts 10mm (3/8") x 100mm (4") with nuts and washers, and 40 wood screws that are 50mm (2") long.

About lumber and sizes
Only two common stock sizes (widths and thicknesses) are required for this project.
They are dressed or surfaced 100x50 (2"x4") and 100x25 (1"x4").

When 100x50 (2"x4") lumber is dressed or surfaced, the size becomes approximately 90x45 (1 1/2"x 3 1/2") which is called the 'actual size'.
When 100x25 (1"x4") lumber is dressed or surfaced, the size becomes approximately 90x20 (3/4"x 3 1/2") which is called the 'actual size'.

All the measurements referred to in this project are the 'actual sizes'.

Use a lumber that is suitable for exterior use.

Dimensions for this project are both metric and imperial. All measurements are given in millimeters first, followed by feet and/or inches in brackets ( ). The metric sizes are not an exact match to the equivalent imperial sizes. A chair built using the metric measurements will be approximately 1.6% smaller than a chair built using the imperial (ft and in) measurements. The imperial measurements are more suited to North America. The metric measurements are more suited to Australasia.
