DIY Log Lounger Gives your Backyard an Exclusive, Eco-Friendly Twist

How would you like to turn those old logs into an amazing outdoor lounger that combines style with sustainability? That’s right, this remarkable DIY log lounger shows you how those simple birch logs can be converted into a relaxing piece of decor without much hassle. The best part of it is that even though it is design as an outdoor furniture piece, it works equally well in rustic, industrial or boho chic settings!


Materials You Need:

  • 3” and 6” birch logs
  • 6” and 9” zinc-coated lag screws
  • Brackets and Deck Screws
  • Chainsaw, drill
  • 1 ¼” Drill Bit and extra long ¼” Bit

You can start off by cutting the birch logs into 18” segments for the chair and you can even use longer sections if you happen to have more wood lying around. This will basically determine the width of your lounger, so choose accordingly. Now lay out a pattern on the floor and set your logs accordingly.

From here, it is time to screw the logs together, check out the form and the stability of the chair and plan any minor adjustments before finishing the super-cool lounger.
