Publisher Comments:

Outdoor furniture is the ideal woodworking project because it doesn't need to be perfect; it only needs to be comfortable and strong enough to withstand water, wind, and sun. In fact, with the right design and techniques, and the appropriate materials, you can craft furniture for your yard, deck, and patio that will be as beloved and long-lasting as any piece you build for the inside of your home. As part of the Built to Last Project Series, Outdoor Furniture delves into 14 sturdy projects every woodworker should build in his or her lifetime-including a classic Adirondack chair and a nostalgic porch swing. This accessible reference will guide you every step of the way with detailed plans, step-by-step instructions for preparing every piece, and directions on how each project fits together. You'll even learn how to design outdoor projects of your own. In the end, you'll be enjoying the great outdoors with attractive, durable furniture you can proudly say you built yourself.

Synopsis:

Woodworkers have to allow for the fact that the pieces will occasionally be drenched in water, dried by the wind, and baked by the sun. With appropriate materials, design, joinery, and hardware, pieces can be built that will be as durable and long lasting as any kitchen side chair or bedroom armoire. As part of the Built to Last Project Series, Outdoor Furniture delves into this sturdy style with 14 projects such as: " Chairs " Benches " Tables " Swings " Gliders " Arbor " Planter " serving trolley Step-by-step instructions, accompanied by crisp drawings detailing every piece of the project and how it all goes together, will guide woodworkers in building from the plans as well as developing their skill at designing outdoor furniture projects of their own.
