Chaise Lounge/Garden Bench

Been piddling on this the past couple of weeks. After looking at various examples of these online, I finally came up with my own design. The special features include wheels and a handle for easy movement, a adult beverage tray and its tall enough to allow it to be used as a bench when needed. Once my wife decides on a color, it will get a few coats of paint.

Nice lounge, Buster! Do you get one as well? Is there a method of securing the pad? Wheels and handle are a great touch. Thanks for sharing.

-- God bless, Candy

Very nice Buster
If it were Oak and you were piddling on it
you would not need paint:)
I guess piddling has a different meaning your side of the puddle? LoL

L2L- Thanks buddy. Its something I know she will use

Russel- Thank you sir. I will have to see what color my wife has in mind. Do they have milk paint in bright yellow? That’s what color the Adirondacks wound up being…

Candy- Thank you mam. Of all the ways I can think OK wasting time…baking in the sun isn’t one of them..so I really don’t need one…lol. I need to built a hammock frame and to park under a tree somewhere. The cushion has tie downs to keep it from blowing away.

Jamie- Thank you guru. Funny, I have never heard of finishing oak quite that the way before…must be a Scottish thing…lol

Serge- thank you sir. Use any part of it you want buddy.

Hoss- thanks buddy. I don’t spend much time around the cement pond, that’s definitely my wife’s baby…lol

Monte- Thank you sir. I took a page on of the Monte design book. Made the cushion out of Beatle kill pine to get that blue color…lol just kidding.

Nikki- Thank you! And it doesn’t run your power bill up…lol

Todd- Thank you cedar king. Speaking of cedar, one of these would be cool built outta cedar. Should build your wife one buddy. She has to be tired after having to carry you all day in the shop…lol…just teasing so stop whining…lol

Nice job. Do you plan on making any plans? My wife would love one of these. I’ve thought about it in the past but just couldn’t get the dimensions straight in my head.

Looks quite useful to someone who enjoys sitting around getting baked! I’m like you in that sitting in the sun is NOT my idea of a “relaxing time”.

The adjustable backrest looks like it’d be useful too. What’d you do for the hinges?

I like your chair and even more if it were in my yard. You need to build a canopy for it for that special nap time.

Scott- thank you sir. If you pm me a email address I will send you what I have.

Joe- thank you buddy. I built a frame to rest inside the putter rails then attached it with 1/4” carriage bolts. Same with the adjustment arms. When laying flat, it all rests on the strip with the notches.

Dave- thanks buddy….still think I need to work on a hammock frame… All
