How to make a garden chaise lounge with your own hands?

Production of things with their own hands always gives pleasure. There is nothing to say about the opening opportunities. Especially since independently made garden chaise lounge will also be perfectly complying with the needs of concrete people.

Drawings and sizes

Before making, it is desirable to draw a scheme that facilitates the work process. Easy, for example, focusing on the drawing, make an excellent chaise lounge with a length of 1.3, 0.65 width and 0.4 m height. The width of the average support rack will be 0.63 m, and the cross section of 0.2×0.3 m will be inserted around the perimeter. The distance between the backup backup and the backrest in the raised state will be 0.34 m. From above on the back and on the lower beaten part are stuffed with a width of 0.1 m. Between them are necessarily the gaps of 0.01 m.

    And here is the frame of the seat of the fabric lounge lounge. The length of it will be 1.118 m, the width will be 0.603 m. In front of the front, two strips of different lengths and a width of 0.565 m with a gap of 0.01 m. The front 0.432 m is set for fastening the support element, so it is necessary to work with this part especially carefully. Closer to another edge, 4 strips of 0.603 m wide with increments of 0.013 m.

    Determining the total sizes of the lounger, it is better to focus on the dimensions of standard models, for example:

    • 1.99 x0.71×0.33;
    • 1.9×0.59×0.28;
    • 3,01×1.19×1.29;
    • 2x1m.

    Materials and tools

    The manufacture of a deck chair is possible for one, maximum in two days. For this you will not need anything, except for breed materials and tools that will be found in almost every home. Important: To consider as a reference samples found in stores, it makes no sense. Make them can usually only in conditions of well-equipped production. Only very few people have such workshops.

    First you need to decide whether the surface for planting is made of soft or from hard elements. In the first case, the fabric will need reliable and street conditions. In the second – wooden planks, of which make up a hard set.

    However, it is important to understand that for staying on the street longer 2-3 hours in a row, a soft chaise lounge is not suitable. In most cases, it is used or at dachas (where there is to work on the housework mainly, making only short breaks), or fishing, on a picnic. The rigid design will require much more effort when assembling, and the materials themselves will cost much.

    Making metal structures should be considered last.

    More suitable materials are as follows:

    • Profile plastic elements;
    • plywood;
    • Natural woody array.

    However, even stopping on a wooden chaise lounge, you will need to understand: what kind of wood use. The main choice is made between an array and jammed plywood. The second option is choosing those who want to save time, albeit and spend a little more forces. In addition, plywood loungers are cheaper made of solid wood. Simple Building Forest can not be used for sun lounger.

    He is simply not sufficiently resistant to sharp changes in temperature regime. Moisturizing is also destroyed for such wood, and both of these factors together and can greatly harm. Purely mechanically fit larch, but she will quickly surf and sit on the bright sun. Of the growing breeds in our country only beech and oak. But it is impossible to use them in the finished form: it will have to soak the billets of a water-polymer emulsion, known under the name “ECOCRANT”.

    Walnut and grab arrays can not be used at all. Although they are durable, resistant to moisture and bright ultraviolet, but can quickly damage the treasures and other pests. From imported wood the best option is Gevei. Its advantages are:

    • relatively low price (comparable with a weathered oak);
    • chemical, physical and biological stability;
    • high enough strength;
    • ease of processing;
    • the ability to make a thin elegant thread;
    • noble appearance;
    • No need for impregnation, polishing, varnish coating.

    However, the Wood of Gevei has only one small drawback: it is sold in the form of relatively short blanks. However, for sun loungers, sun beds and other homemade furniture, this minus is not too critical. If people choose Phaneur, the development appears again: what type of preferred. Aviation plywood, despite the promising name, bad: it is expensive, almost not bends, prone to cracking.

    Building pine material can easily burn out. Yes, and his cost, too, will not spare a wallet. The only way out turns out the purchase of packaging plywood. True, it will have to be significantly improved, soak the same familiar “EcoGerut”. For impregnation use plaster brush.

    Handle the workpiece before cutting 2-3 times on both sides. Between the impregnations leave the interval from 15 to 30 minutes. Then you need to dry Phaneur 24 hours. Important: If the temperature is more than 25 degrees, and air humidity is less than 60%, you can limit the night drying. The need to impregnate Phaneur before the saw is related to the fact that it will appear less dust and dirt.

    Plywood sawing itself (and wood, if the array is selected) should be done very precisely. Therefore, you have to postpone the hand saws and use the electric jig. Measurement is carried out using a ruler or construction roulette. ATTENTION: In the absence of experience with the electric bike, it is better to first work out the skills on trimming and waste of wood. Only after that you can safely take a finite work.

    As for plywood, it must be remembered that sufficient resistance to moisturizing the details from it will be achieved only on the second or third day after impregnation. For glides, the strips recommend using the PVA mounting glue. But liquid nails apply inexpedient. After sizing, you need to wait for the same 2 or 3 days.

    Better stock is possible with a large number of clamps, gravity for squeezing blanks.

    The use of metal fasteners also helps to speed up. However, it is necessary to understand that the heads of the screws will hang out. Solve the task helps their screaming and painting. The problem will also be gradual rusting of fasteners and weakening design. That’s why Experienced self-delicacies immediately postpone the self-tapping screws and use finish nails, they are nails for platbands.

    Some of them (more expensive) are made of bronze, and others (cheaper) from a good stainless steel. Thanks to the anodization in different tones, you can select an ideally inconspicuous option for “your” material. As for the bent parts from glued plywood, they categorically impossible to overwhelm. Otherwise, the material is quickly becoming very fragile, even more than untreated plywood. Stripes on longitudinal flooring are nailed with finish nails, and the lateral flooring is fixed using a plaza.

      This name received a smooth tree shield. On the plaza, the appropriate size is blank profile contours. They need to do exactly as much as they need, because it is impossible to remove the lamella to the final drying of the glue. Next, the algorithm of actions is:

      • Polyethylene transparent polyethylene fell on plas;
      • According to profile lines, bars are stipulated;
      • They nourish the first plywood line;
      • The second lines before fastening are deceived by glue;
      • After curing the glue by 85% of the workpiece and bars ripped off the plaza;
      • Brucks are considered a nail-holder;
      • Problem ends of nails cut.

      Considering this, you need to add it to be prepared for work:

      • nail holder;
      • a hammer;
      • brush;
      • fasteners;
      • electric jigsaw;
      • roulette;
      • ruler.

      How easy to do from wood?

      Use the timber or phanee described in the methods, of course, can certainly. But only it is very laborious and long. Significantly facilitates the case of the “Kentucky” scheme. For work you will need:

      • 6 speakes 0.375 m per seat;
      • 2 Reiki on the rear legs with a length of 0.875 m;
      • 2 renishes on the back 0.787 m long;
      • 2 renisms on the back shortened (0.745 m);
      • 2 rails on the front legs (1.05 m);
      • 9 dividing wheels 0.228 m long;
      • Drill and drill 6 mm.

        Manufacturing technology is as follows:

        • Slices of timber fold in a row;
        • connect them with wire or studs;
        • lay out elements alternately;
        • fasten them in a checker.

        Optimal Material for Kentuccian Chaise Lounge – Pine Bars. They must be departed to emery to a completely smooth surface. Recommendation: It is better to arrange sections in the form of a semicircle, then the design will look more aesthetic.

        Drill holes for fasteners it is necessary in strict accordance with the drawing. Strip edges fixed nuts.

        Step-by-step instructions for creating a fabric lounge chair

        The basis of the design is the bed or clamshell. In the main frame will have to drill holes. In the auxiliary frame there are 4 outbreaks (otherwise it is impossible to adjust the tilt of the back). Then cook holes under the ends of the rivers to put the seat.

        The transverse edges of the round section are failed with glue and lay in the hole. Then the fabric of the desired volume is measured (after fixing it will have to sag). Treat the edge of the fabric will help the sewing machine. After that, the matter is tensioned on the crossbar. It takes it to nail it.

        The legs of the back are made of a pair of 0.02x0x0x1.22 m; Additionally, you will need 1 rail with dimensions:

        • 0.02x0x0x0.61 m;
        • 0.02×0.04×0.65 m;
        • 0.02×0.06×0.61 M.

        The seat is made of 4 hundred 0.02x0x0x0.6 m and 2 hundred 0.02×0.04×1.12 m. One thing, you will need a fortification of 0.02×0.04×0.57 and 0.02×0.06×0.57 m. Backing support will provide 2 details of 0.02×0.04×0.38 m. For the same purpose, a rod is prepared by a cross section of 0.012 m and a length of 0.65 m. For the tissue seats, it will take a piece of suitable matter with a size of 1.37×1.16 m and a pair of wooden rods with a diameter of 0.012 m, length of 0.559 m.

        To fulfill all the necessary work, you will also need:

        • 4 bolts;
        • 4 nuts;
        • 8 washers;
        • screws;
        • glue joiner;
        • drill;
        • emery or ush;
        • Round feet.

        Any details are grouped in advance and impregnate protective mixtures. At the bottom of the legs of the seat, crossbars are formed, helping to fix the back. The backing frame should also have bolts holes. On the frame of the seat retreat from the top of 0.43 m, before making a break.

        The hole in the support of the back is done exactly in the middle.

        It is necessary first of all to make a frame back. Major fixed fixed with a strip of 0.02×0.06×0.61 m. If two planks are used, leave the gap 0.01 m to secure matter. Holes when assembling the frame of the back and the seats are fixed by bolts and nuts, the frame racks are certainly separated by the washer. IMPORTANT: twisting additional monitoring will increase the reliability of the deck chair.

        Next Mount Support Back. Bolts and washers also hold the planks. Large ducts are pressed into a hole on glue. The durable fabric is folded in two layers and flash in 0.015 m from the edges. Turning on the front side, flexion the edge for the rod and flash it.

        Next, produce the following actions:

        • The edges of the matter are sticking between the planks;
        • put into the bend rod;
        • Clean the roughness of the Nadfil, Eatak or Oshm.

        How else can you make?

        From pallets

        But the manufacturer’s hand-held armchair for giving is possible and pallet. It is even easier. First, one pallet is put on another, and the third takes the wider than two previous. Then this pallet back is disassembled. All lower, front and rear boards set aside. Half of the upper – too.

        Next step – Installing the back on your feet. Make the legs can be from the former trimming. Then connect all the prepared elements with screws. Other fastening options are not reliable enough. At the end of work, the homemade chaise lounge remains only to paint.


        You can make a chaise longue and stainless steel. Rather, it will be a fabric product with a steel frame. 3 frames are formed from tubular blanks: 1.2×0.6 m, 1.1×0.55 m and 0.65×0.62 m. They are definitely grinding, and then connected with fasteners. First collect backdrop frames and her supports, after which they are only taken behind the seat.

        As soon as it is ready, all parts connect.

        From polypropylene pipes

        For this work, you can use only reinforced pipes. The framework will go to the frame 40, and the other elements are made of pipes with a cross section 32. For their connection, adapter fittings will be needed. Then you still need corners under the headboard. The main parts are soldered to each other with special soldering iron, then tip the cloth.
