Here is a cedar chaise lounge build for a friend at work. It is 26” wide 12” off the ground and 78” long. The hardest part was the adjustment supports that support the back rest at the different positions. The decorative part in the centre of the seat was due to a miscalculation at the lumber yard. The 1×4’s that make up the cross supports that are to be cut at 24” only came in 14’ lengths and would not fit in my van. No problem I just had the lumber yard attendant cut tem in half. Oops, 14” divided by 2 is seven feet and therefor I had a bunch of 12” pieces that were totally useless and left me with not enough lumber to complete the chairs. The solution is to turn them 90 degrees and glue them to 24” support pieces and install them that way. I thought it actually made the project better in the end.
There was no finish applied to these chairs as the new owner wanted them to age naturally. Hope you like and questions and comments are more than welcome.
