Many items can be made from wood that could be decorative or functional. If you want build your own furniture, then wood will be the best material for this purpose. One piece of furniture that you can make from wood is a cedar folding lawn chair.
My husband and I made several of these, since we have family and friends who visit often. We all sit outside in the evening and grill out. We always make homemade ice cream and/or eat watermelon. These chairs are so awesome…everybody loves them! They’re really unique and cool looking too!
This folding outdoor chair is easy to make, good looking and very comfortable. Build it in a few hours with 2×2 lumber – no nails, screws nor glue needed.
Proper measurements are needed to cut the wood to build a cedar folding lawn chair. This chair needs a few nuts and bolts to secure metal rods which hold the wood together. You will not use screws or nails for this project. However, you will need to use a saw to cut the pieces of wood to assemble the chair.
Once you have the cedar folding lawn chair assembled, then you have a few options to consider. A chair can be sealed, stained, or painted. If you want to keep the natural look of the wood, then adding a sealer is all that is needed.
