Before beginning to build, always check in on my site to make sure you have the most up to date set of plans, I occasionally update and change the plans to make the building process easier or to allow for less expensive purchasing of materials! Read through the entire set of instructions and all comments before beginning this project. If you print out or save plans, be sure to check in on my site to be sure you have the most up to date set of plans, as I occasionally update things for ease of building or buying. If you are new to building, read through the GETTING STARTED section and other articles found under the BUILD tab in the menu on my site, it has valuable information about how to get started, tools and techniques. If you are unfamiliar with the finishing process, visit my Finishing school for some tips and tricks for painting like a pro and for special finishing practices. 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, or contact me via email or post to the forum before you move ahead. My contact info can be found in the menu of my site.
Build the Frame: Use your Kreg Jigs® set for 3/4” stock and your 1 1/4” pocket hole screws and glue.
Add the Interior Frame: Build using your Kreg Jigs® set for 3/4” stock and your 1 1/4” pocket hole screws and glue, then fasten to the Frame using 1 1/4” Wood Screws and glue. Place the Interior Frame 3/4” from the top edge of the Frame to allow for the Seat Slats to rest flush in the next step. **If you would like to use your Kreg Jig to secure the seat in the next step, you will want to add the pocket holes to the Interior Frame prior to constructing and attaching it to the Frame. You don’t need to go crazy for that step, just add 3-4 pocket holes per interior frame board to simply hold the seat in place. You will attach in the next step.
Construct the Lower Seat: Using your Kreg Jigs®set for 3/4” stock and your 1 1/4” pocket hole screws and glue, fasten the slats to the Outside Seat Boards. Leave 1/4” Overhang at one end of the Seat (the end that will sit in the center of the lounger and connect to the back rest). You will then attach this seat to the Interior Frame constructed in the previous step using 1 1/4” pocket hole screws in the locations you created in the previous step, or by fastening the seat to the frame using 1 1/4” wood screws from the top of the seat down into the frame.
Construct the Back Rest: Use your Kreg Jigs®set for 3/4” stock and your 1 1/4” pocket hole screws and glue to construct the back rest portion of the seat, then attach to the Lower Seat using standard butt hinges.
Add the Back Rest Supports: Use your Kreg Jigs®set for 3/4” stock and your 1 1/4” pocket hole screws and glue to attach your supports to the back rest. They will attach in a vertical position to the back rest and should be spaced 27 1/4” apart (yellow bars) to adequately allow for the back rest stand in the next step. The lower support (blue), will simply attach in the center of the lowest board to provide extra support for the back rest.
Construct the Back Rest Stand: Use your Kreg Jigs® set for 1 1/2” stock and your 2 1/2” pocket hole screws and glue to construct the stand. It will be something of a T Shape, only with 2 legs and a bottom, so not really a T Shape at all, but you get the point. Once you have fastened the stand together, attach it to the Back Rest using standard butt hinges as shown (it’s shown in an attached and lowered position, but please note that other than with the hinges, it doesn’t attach to the back rest itself, it needs to be able to move and rotate as you can see in the second image below for this step).
