Outdoor furniture and a foot chair, most of you have probably already seen the video I did for my brother's channel on how to make an outdoor projector screen. Well, this is the chair that I made to go with it. I set my circular saw to twenty-two point five degrees and cut four pieces of 2x4. Now I'll put the links that I cut in the description box. But for now, all you need to know is that you can get all four pieces out of one eight-foot 2X4.
I then cut a bunch of 1x3 is to use as the slaps for the seat and the back of the chair. I already decided that I was going to paint this chair, so I just gave it a light sanding to smooth it out and I hand sanded to break all the edges. I made sure to find the right angles before per-drilling holes and attaching the pieces with deck screws. Some of this was a little bit awkward, but I used foot clamps and knee techniques to keep all the pieces together.
I felt like I had a pretty good handle on how to put the pieces together, but then stopped by we had some lunch together. We talked about the project and he showed me some good tips and tricks because these chairs were going to be outside. I thought they needed a little more protection than what I usually give my furniture. So I had my brother Nate help me put on a couple coats of an exterior paint. I lined up the 1 by threes on the very front and the very back of the seat and per-drilled.
Before I attach them with trim screws, then I laid out the other pieces and just eyeballed the distance between them before attaching them. For the back of the chair, I just used one of the 1 by 3s as a spacer to make sure that it looked even. The reason why I use the measurements that I did for this chair is because I had a cushion that I wanted to use, so I just measured the cushion and built the chair to match it.
