Patio lounger using birch logs
Using birch logs to make this modern lounger is a fun way to add a unique piece of furniture to your indoor or outdoor spaces.
If you know of anyone having their birch trees trimmed, or know of a tree-felling company in your area, using birch logs to make this modern lounger is a fun way to add a unique piece of furniture to your indoor or outdoor spaces. It's easy enough to make and won't cost much, even if you have to pay for the logs.
The original post and video provides Imperial measurments, so I have included metric measurements below.
YOU WILL NEED:
Logs of between 100mm and 200mm in diameter
Have the logs cut to a length of around 450mm to 500mm. This will be the width of the chair and you can make it wider if you prefer. You can also use a chain saw or sabre saw to cut your logs to the length required.
48 Lag screws - 150mm for up to 200mm diameter logs
2 of 1800mm lengths of steel flat bar for bracings*
Pack of 4 x 75mm cut screws
Drill / Driver
20mm spade bit
4mm wood bit or HSS bit at least 200mm long
*Buy a long length of steel flat bar. Cut into strips of 200mm long and pre-drill 5mm holes for mounting.
