Why not settle back and take-r-easy in our deck lounge chair. The stool is separate and the legs fold up for storage. Build and finish it a number of ways. Use regular deck screws and deck boards, then stain it a color you like. Or build it with cedar or teak and use brass screws, for a visual impact that will make people think you spent hundreds of dollars for you outdoor furniture. Inspired by the Titanic deck chairs. Full size drawings make it really easy.
