Plans for woodworking projects are by far the
best tool to get started on anything you want accomplished. It is so
much easier when you get instructions right in front of you than trying
to figure it out on your own.
My wife and I talked about getting pool
side lounge chairs made of Cedar for a long time. When we saw the price
they were selling for, making them ourselves was a very attractive
But we could not come up with the right measurements and
the right style. We looked at the price of the wood but did not know
how much to get for two chairs and did not want to just make a guess on
that, since it is a very expensive material.
In the mean time I
found online some plans for woodworking projects and figure that it
would be a good investment for the price. I found in the downloadable
package many different styles of lounge chairs, some much better that
the ones we saw at the stores.
Within less than an hour, we were able to:
* Choose the style we liked best
* Figure out how much wood to buy to make two chairs
* Calculate the amount of money needed
* Print out the list of everything needed including the necessary hardware
* Get in the car and head for the hardware store
There are so
many things I did not know about how to make lounge chairs and what to
protect them with once they are done.The plans really explained
everything I needed to know and were easy to follow.
There is no way we
could have done it just by guess work and it would have took us
forever. As a matter of fact, we were not even able to get started.
saved a lot of money and had fun making this project together. There
are so many ideas in this package of plans to do other things that we
are talking about making more things such as a table to go with the
chairs, a garden bench and a picnic table.
What I like the most about
it is that I found styles that I could not see in stores or think about
myself. Our friends have been asking us where we got our chairs and
when we told them that we build them ourselves they did not believe it!
