$40 backyard chair
Given that the chair is designed to be placed outdoors, this project uses pressure-treated wood.
This will help fight problems such as wood rot that will occur with standard wood.
This is a weekend type project that can be completed in less than a day.
The chair for this project was built with the fire pit recently installed.
Wooden chairs can be very expensive, priced at $500-
$700 depending on the chair and wood.
Building a chair can add a personal feel, such as a beeline and back panel, while saving a lot of cash.
This chair style may not work for everyone, but with this tutorial on how it is done, I hope it will be an inspiration to build your own variants.

While you may not have all the tools on this list, there are a lot of alternatives to play the same role.
Things to pay attention to before and when building. Be sure to pre-
Sink all screw holes in order to rinse the finish clean.
Make sure all materials are suitable for outdoor use.
This means that all wood must be treated under pressure and all screws must be treated with flame retardant.
Ensure that all edges of the final product are polished and rounded to obtain a cleaner and safer overall product in appearance.
In the first part of this chair, we will make the front legs.
These legs will be made of standard 2x4.
We need two front legs cut from two 2x4 lengths to 22 \".
Now that the front legs are ready, we need to do the hind legs.
These legs will be made of 2x6 pressure treated wood.
The wood needs to be cut into two pieces first, each with a length of 36 \".
The hind legs are mounted at an angle and therefore need to be cut as follows.
Measure 3 down from the top right corner of the wood, then Mark 3/4 on the top of the wood.
Then connect the two marks and cut the corners.
Now, this one is cut down, measuring 15 1/4, and then marking 1 3/4 inward at the top of the wood.
Connect the two marks and cut them.
After this cut, the 90-degree line starting from the first initial cut is marked using the speed Square.
Please refer to the image to see how this should be generated.
Measure and Mark 1 1/2 \"on the other side and then cut.
Now that the four legs have been completed, they can be connected.
To do this, we will use 3 \"lag bolts\" with a diameter of 1/4 thick \".
We will install the hind legs on the inside of the front leg so that the lag bolts are not visible, making the chair look cleaner overall.
To install two legs on each front leg, measure 14 3/4 and mark it.
Now Mark 1 inward on the wood.
When installing the hind legs, the top of the leg should be at the 14 3/4 \"mark and parallel to the 1\" line.
To make sure this is correct, you can use a deck of 1x6 to make sure it is flush with the front of the leg.
Once they are all straight sinks, there are at least two lag bolts on each side.
See how the next step is done.
Now that the leg base has been built, it\'s time to connect the two.
We will do this by connecting a deck of 1x6 to the front.
This product should be easy to install flat and flush in 1 \"slot.
This can be fixed with four screws.
After the connection, it should look like the image above.
At this point, we are ready to add the actual seat to the chair.
In order to do this, we need to cut more of the 1x6 decks into three pieces with a length of 21.
The fourth piece will be torn off so that it has a width of 1 1/2 and a length of 21.
Now, these four pieces can be mounted on the back of the chair, and the smallest piece can be mounted on the back of the chair.
Now it\'s time for the seat to be built.
The work will be made from more 2x 4S.
We need two back supports so make sure to copy this step.
To begin, the length of the wood needs to be reduced to 35 \".
Now that the length is right, we need to do two angle cuts, one at each end.
Measure down and Mark 1 1/4 \"for the first angle \".
From this point, connect a line in the corner opposite it and make the cut.
Measure and Mark 2 \"up and 2\" in at the other end of the wood.
Then connect the wire and cut it.
The two brackets should now look like the image above.
To install the backrest, rest the wood against the back of the seat and make sure it is flush with the bottom of the hind legs.
Then connect the two brackets with the lag bolt.
At this point, we need to build additional back support, which will also support the chair arm with another piece in the next step.
The bracket is cut from 2x4 with a length of 28 5/8.
Make the two angles of this piece measure 1/4 down and mark it.
Then connect the mark to the opposite corner for cutting.
At the other end of the wood, as in the previous step, measure 2 \"down and 2\" and then connect the line at the back.
This should be the case now.
Make sure there are two of these on each side.
Check the installation of these brackets outside the main bracket of the chair.
It should be snug in the slot and flush at the top of the other main stand.
We need to make the rear arm bracket before connecting these brackets.
These will support the arm to make the arm level of the chair.
For these parts, I cut 7 1/2 \"2x4 and then chamfer the edges in a 45 degree cut.
Lean the part against the chair and use the level to determine the angle at which it needs to be cut so that the chair arm rest remains horizontal on the front chair leg.
Once both pieces are cut horizontally, they can be attached to the side stand.
These brackets are then attached to the chair.
At this point, we can now rest the back.
The back panel is made of a deck of 1x6 layers and each deck is cut into 5 pieces and is 21 \"in length \".
These can be fixed inside with screws and can be adjusted by gently pushing the back bracket if needed to ensure they are flush all the way.
We are now ready to make the chair into a handrail.
The arm will be made from another part of the 1x6 deck and cut into 33 \".
Measure 2 \"at the bottom of the wood, 19\" up opposite.
Then connect the line and cut out the angle.
Now use the puzzle to round the edges so they don\'t have rough corners.
The two arms can then be attached to the chair and the front and back arm parts are screwed into an angle to support and hide the screws.
In the last part of the chair, we need to support the front of the arm.
These are made by cutting a piece of wood into a square of 3 1/4 \"3 1/4.
The piece of wood is then cut into a 45 degree angle and then fixed to the chair.
At this point, the chair has been completed and can be done by sanding all the rough edges and adding chamfers where needed.
The chair can also be done with additional paint or stain coating.
Be sure to post photos of the chairs you completed and I will be happy to see them.
