Outdoor cedar lounge chair. It was one of my first true design challenges. Coming up with the pivoting, adjusting back and comfortable arm rests.

I love them. Would love to have the plans. What kind of cedar did you use and what did it cost you?

In the pics shown, there is no finish. That’s just raw Western Red Cedar. I later put on cetol deck finsih to match the rest of the furniture. Sorry no plans on these either. All the wood probably cost me $200 canadian. It’s salvaged old growth cedar from the top of Vancouver Island.

Fantastic chair.For relaxing in summers, outdoor lounge chairs provide the perfect comfort. It is one of the best patio furniture to invest in.

These are awesome. Nice work. I’m looking to make a set of chairs just like these soon, any chance you made a set of plans for these?
