This project is for the weekend warrior woodworker as a moderate DIY challenge. While I detailed the cuts in the video with a table saw they could also be done with a hand held circular saw.
My chair took inspiration from one I saw by Katie Jackson, you should check out her version in her book “Hand-made outdoor furniture”. I originally was going to make her chair but had a hard time finding a cushion with the correct dimensions to fit it. So I redesigned it to fit my needs, with a readily available cushion size. The storage compartment can be a great place to hold covers for the patio furniture among other things.
This chair can work as a sectional piece. By pushing it up against chairs of the same kind you can form a sofa. In the future I plan on designing additional furniture to work with it; this may include a chase lounge, ottoman, corner sofa and a table.
