Instructions

Read through the entire set of instructions and all comments before beginning this project. If you print out or save our plans, be sure to check back before starting your build, to be sure you have the most up to date set of plans. Use glue to secure your joints and Consider Painting or Staining individual sections prior to assembling. This makes the paint application virtually flawless. Coat with a spray on Poly or Wipe on Poly to protect your finish and your piece and it will last for ages. Adhere to all safety standards and guidelines, and be sure you follow safety protocol throughout your build. If you are unsure about whether you are building safely, run a quick online search for the tool or technique you are using.

Step 1

Cut the pieces for the front legs. Draw the pieces for the back legs on the 2×4 and cut out using a jigsaw or a band saw.

Cut the pieces for the aprons. Set the Kreg jig for ¾” material and drill pocket holes in each end. Assemble as shown using glue and 1-1/2” pocket hole screws.

Step 2

Cut the pieces for the lower and center stretchers. Cut the angles as shown in the ends of the side stretchers. Set the Kreg jig for 1-1/2” material and drill pocket holes in each end of the pieces. Attach to the legs as shown using glue and 2” pocket hole screws.

Step 3

Cut the pieces for the back slats. Set the Kreg jig for ¾” material and drill pocket holes in each end. Attach the 1×2 slat first. The outside face of this slat will be flush with the top of the back legs. Orient the pocket holes so they are facing down and attach to the legs using glue and 1-1/2” pocket hole screws.

Drill pocket holes in each end of the wider slats. The front face of these slats will be flush with the front face of the legs. Attach using glue and 1-1/2” pocket hole screws!

Step 4

Cut the piece for the seat. Attach to the chair using glue and 1-1/2” brad nails.

Step 5

Cut the pieces for the pocket sides. Cut the angles as shown and drill pocket holes in the longer ends. Attach to the back legs as shown using glue and 1-1/2” pocket hole screws.

Cut the piece for the pocket bottom. Drill pocket holes in each end. Attach to the sides as shown using glue and 1-1/2” pocket hole screws.
