How to build a simple garden chair (10 pages)

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

Metric & imperial measurements. Easy to build wooden garden chair. Simply cut and drill each piece according to the plan drawings, and assemble it.

Once all the wood 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!

Only two common stock sizes (widths and thicknesses) are required for this project.

They are dressed or surfaced 100 mm x 50 mm (2″x4″) and 100 mm x 25 mm (1″x4″).

    This chair that I modified from the plans for “How to build a simple garden chair” was made to go with a patio table that I had built with cedar.
    The width was adjusted to suit the table. I now will build 3 mote. I did not use bolts and nuts as in the plans. I used deck screws and glue and a kreg jig for the back and seat boards.
    I did not want screws on the seat and back boards.

    I used your plans and made a few changes and wanted to let you see what i have done very easy still. Also made an end table to go with it to.

    Hi There,
    Just Luuuv your plans. And they are easy. My very first attempt at any type of woodwork. Made 4 benches, 2 chairs and 2 tables all from recycled pine pallets.
    Sealed them with “woodoc” marine sealer and they are permanently outside.

    I like the design of the chair but I had some boards that were long enough to make a bench so that’s what I did.
    Thanks,

    I made two of these ‘simple garden chairs’ last summer and find them to be a good sturdy design, and a fun project to build.
    I especially like the support structure of the frame, the way the legs, seat and back go together.
    I cut a hand-hold into the top back slat, partly functional, mostly decorative.
    However I found that the design of the back is a little uncomfortable, and I may take the backs apart for modifications.
    I plan to curve the leading edge of the back support, so the bottom slat doesn’t dig into the sitter’s back quite so much.
    Perhaps work out a way to attach the armrests to the outside frame of the back also, enabling lower slats.
    Other than that, I like the chairs really well.
    I built them out of locally milled white spruce and they grace our home-built screenhouse in the woods just off our yard where we sleep in summer.
    I plan to build a garden bench with the same design, modifying the back and arms as described.
    Thank you for this wonderful chair plan,

    Here is a photo of my simple garden chair with some minor changes, I moved the armrest to the outside and added a front and top slat. Also, I used 3.5 inch bolts and recessed the nuts into the sides.

    Your design built a solid, handsome chair. I made some adjustments to the design with more slats, some cross bracing, and shifted the position of the arm support. This one sits in an outdoor pool and spa shop here in Dallas. And there are 2 more in my yard.
    Thanks for the Idea

    That was a great plan. I used it as a basis for a special project, and I am very pleased with the results.
    I modified it to make an umpire chair of sorts, to be used at our local gun club for scoring the trap competitions.
    See attached.
    Thanks for the great design idea.

    Great plan, and thanks also to others who posted photos because they were really helpful. We also moved the arm supports to the outside, and changed the back supports to be vertical, as well as recessing the bolts at the front of the arm support; because we weren’t confident of being able to replicate curves, we did everything with straight cuts. We used macrocarpa (Monterey Cypress); here in New Zealand it doesn’t need any treatment and will just weather down to a nice grey. Thanks to Buildeazy for providing this great website!
