I built these a couple years ago for my kids school auction. The plans were found online somewhere, but don’t remember where. The back is on wheels so they can easily be moved around, and the backs recline to flat. The table is pretty simple, with the top slats curved on the ends to mimic the curved ends of the chairs.

How much waste did you have because of knots?. Looks good. Might copy these for a PTA auction.

Thanks for the kinds words!

Ron – Not too much waste due to knots. I ended up ripping cedar 2×6’s for the seat and back slats because I already had ‘em, and there were a couple strips I had to scrap because of knots. The other thing, if you rip 2×6’s or 2×4’s for this you may get some twisting. I had to replace one slat on the seat because it twisted after a couple days and curled up on the rounded end. There are three cross bars under the slats that you screw the slats into, so you can somewhat straighten slightly bowed slats when you screw them down.

One other thing if you build these, invest in some chaise cushions. The loungers look great, but are not very soft. :)
