This is my first lounge chair. Being fairly new to woodworking, I found this to be quite enjoyable and entertaining to make. I made this completely from Red Cedar. This was a gift to my parents for Christmas. The finish is Minwax Natural with two coats of Urithane outdoor. The wheels were recycled from junk equipment. I had the plans from a magazine but modified them a little bit to suit my needs. This is completely assembled with pocket holes so there were no visible screws. The slide out table on the underside slides both directions left and right.

I think you did a bang up job on this. Looks great I have seen these plans somewhere in one of my books and thought about making one. I really like the look of cedar you used.

That’s a good looking lounger. I’ve been wanting to make a couple. The
sliding table is a wonderful feature! Do you happen to have any other pics
of the table area?

Really nice job. This will stand up better than the plastic ones you buy now. Well done, and thanks for the post.

Thanks very much for posting this. I’ve been wanting to make one of these and I really like this style and look. Now I have a reason to get that pocket hole jig. Any plans appreciated.
