Last week, my Dad and I decided to renovate our front yard and install a cozy DIY fire pit. It turned out pretty cool and cozy, but I felt like it was missing something, so I decided as usual to browse the internet for other ideas that I could add to our project. Luckily, it didn’t take me long enough to see this brilliant log lounger tutorial by HomeMadeModern on YouTube! It was quite simple to make, the instructions were very clear, and it was a really fun experience.
After collecting the logs or some tree branches that are around 3 inches or 6 inches in diameter, start cutting them into pieces of about 18 inches long. Grab a masking tape and stick it on the floor shaping it into whatever design you want for your log chair, but if you want to make it the same way as the video tutorial, then make a curved shape.
Start drilling some holes on the sides of the log, then attach their sides together using screws making sure to use the masking tape on the floor as the guide for the form of the log chair. After assembling the logs, you’ll notice that some parts of the chair will be wobbly, all you have to do is to use the steel brackets to strengthen it. Attach them all over the back of the log chair until they are stable and sturdy.
