Make sure you follow us on Facebook to be the first that gets our latest plans and for some other exclusive content. Also, follow us on Pinterest to get many ideas for your backyard from all the internet! Place the components on a level surface and align them properly, making sure the corners are perfectly square.
Build the both sides of the bench, in the same manner described above and lock the frame together.
Top Tip: Use a spirit level to make sure the frame is perfectly horizontal and the sides plumb, before inserting the wood screws. Top Tip: Apply wood glue on the edges of the slats, before locking them together, to enhance the bond and to wake the joints waterproof.
Smooth all the exposed edges of the bench, using a sand-block, otherwise you might easily injure in the sharp edges. Top Tip: Apply several coats of wood stain to protect the wood from rot and to enhance its rustic appearance. Top Tip: After installing the posts and the support beams, you should continue the project by installing the joists and the decking boards. Before installing the joists to the support beams, you should make sure they are perfectly level.
Top Tip: Fit the joists over the support beams and lock them into place with appropriate metal hardware. As you can see in the image, you need to use joists hangers when fitting the beams to the ledger. Top Tip: In order to get consistent gaps between the joists, we recommend you to mark the outline of the hoists on the ledger. After attaching the beams to the ledger, you should attach a piece of 1×4 lumber at the opposite side, in order to keep them equally spaced. Nevertheless, you need to align the components at both ends before locking them into place with galvanized screws. After installing the rest of the decking boards, you should cut the ends at the right size.
Top Tip: Use a circular saw with a sharp blade to cut the ends of the boards at the right size, along the cut line.
Top Tip: You should also install trims to the ends of the decking, as well as fascias to the exterior frame of the deck. You should also remember that you could adjust the size of the wooden chaise lounge chair, in order to suit your needs and tastes. A wooden chaise lounge is a great example of a diy project that doesn’t require a large investment, but change dramatically the look of any patio or deck.
Top Tip: Adjust the size of the chair to your needs, but use the same carpentry techniques described in this guide. After building the backrest, as well as the prop-up you should fit it into place and lock it with one carriage bolt on both sides. Top Tip: Drill pilot holes both trough the frame of the lounge chair and trough the back rest. To Tip: If you will place the chair in the garden, you have to apply several coats of wood stain, in order to protect it from rot. Before starting the actual project, we strongly recommend you to study the local building codes, as there are cases in which a building permit is required. Building a square gazebo is a complex woodworking project, so you should plans everything thoroughly. Top Tip: If you live in a windy area or you just want to build a durable gazebo, you should create a dense network of joists, as in the plans.
Top Tip: Place a straight edge on top of the posts and use a spirit level to make sure the posts are horizontal.
As you can see in the image, you should secure the regular joists to the rim joists, using metal hangers. Top Tip: Align the components thoroughly, before driving in the galvanized screws into place.
Do you have an estimate for the cost material for the entire project, base, roof and rails ?
The easiest way to get an estimate is to print the materials list and to take it to the local lumber yard.
In this article we show you several designs for wooden carports that are able to protect one or more cars. An attached carport is a great choice, if you have a small backyard or if you want to have a quick access to your home, after getting off the car. In order to build the attached carport, you could use wood or metal components, according to the style of your house and your budget.
Top Tip: The main difference as compared to the previous example are the lower angle of the roof, as well its height.
If you want to build an unique detached carport and money isn’t a problem, you should consider this beautiful design. You can attach lattice or slats to the sides of the gable carport and transform it into a garage. If you want to build a large carport, able to protect at least two cars, there are a few alternatives you could choose from. The free standing construction has all the sides open, but you can easily attach lattice between the wood posts, if you want more privacy. If you want to build a carport for more than three cars, you could choose a traditional barn design.
You can adjust the size of the carport to your needs, but you should keep the simple design, if you want to build a timeless construction. If you are serious about keeping your car in a perfect condition, the only way is to build a garage. There are many plans and designs to choose from, so make sure you take a close look over the rest of the table plans featured on our website. The next step of the woodworking project is to attach the supports to the legs of the outdoor side table. The next step of the woodworking project is to lock the sides of the table together by fitting the aprons. In order to get the job done in a professional manner, we recommend you to fit the 1×4 slats to the top of the table, as well as to the bottom shelf. Top Tip:A If you want to enhance the look of the woodworking project and to protect the table from decay, we recommend you to cover the components with paint or stain.
Always drill pilot holes before inserting screws or nails, to prevent the wood from splitting. The first step of the project is to build the frames (this project requires two identical frames) for the outdoor bar.
Top Tip: We strongly recommend you to drill pilot holes at both ends of the slats and countersink the head of the screws.
Attaching the side cladding is a straight forward job, if you follow our instructions and work with attention. Top Tip: If you countersink the head of the screws, you can easily fill them later with wood filler and get a neat appearance. If you want to organize the bar efficiently, you should take into account building several shelves, as in the image. Top Tip: Use a spirit level to check if the shelves are horizontal and if the splitting panel is plumb.
You can see in the image the back of the outdoor bar and how you can use the space efficiently. Top Tip: Cover the wooden components with several coats of stain or paint, to protect them from wood decay. A planter bench is a great addition for decks and small gardens, as they add character and enhance the look of any backyard. To Tip: You should adjust the size of the bench planter to your needs, but use the same carpentry techniques to get the job done. You can also add some 1×4 pieces under the frame to create a small clearance space between the ground and the frame. Fit 2×2 supports under the frame, if you really want to enhance the rigidity of the frame. As you can see you can learn how to build this garden bench in just one weekend, if you follow my step by step plans and instructions.
The secret for a neat result is to select perfectly straight slats and to take accurate measurements before making the cuts. My 9 year old son and I built this in a weekend, because I needed to get him away from screens.
If you are all about saving money and minimize waste, you could make the slats for the planters 24″.
Measure the components with great attention, and use proper tools to cut them at the right size. Building an arbor bench is a straight forward project, if you use the right plans for your needs and budget. Top Tip: If you want to make your arbor unique, or you just want to add character to your project, you should build an attached top, as in our plans. If you need a permanent construction, anchor the arbor to a concrete slab, using metal brackets.
Continue the project by joining the two posts with 4×4 supports, as in the free plans.
Top Tip: In order to get the job done in a professional manner, attach wooden caps on top of the posts. Afterwards, cut lattice panels to the appropriate size and lock them into place, using 1×1 trims. Top Tip: In order to build the arched supports, you could joint together several segments (two adjacent layers) and lock them with a good wood glue and C-clamps.


Top Tip: If you want to protect the wood from water damage and decay, clean the surface with a cloth and apply several coats of wood stain. This is a nice weekend project, as it’s a great opportunity to work with wood and to build something beautiful with your own hands. In addition, if you use the right woodworking techniques and choose a nice design, the wooden bench would be the perfect place to relax during the summer days. Therefore, you should select straight 1×6 boards and cut them to the right size, using a mire saw with a sharp blade. As you can notice in the free plans, the back legs are angled, in order to enhance the look of the storage bench.
Next, place the seat with the battens downward-oriented and make sure it is aligned properly. Alternatively, you could install a continuous hinge between the joint of the lid with the stationary slat.
Don’t forget to countersink the head of the screws, if you want to obtain a professional look. As we have already said, you need to leave small gaps between the flooring slats, to allow the water drain properly. If you want to see more outdoor plans, check out the rest of our step by step projects and follow the instructions to obtain a professional result. After laying out the deck and pouring the concrete footings, you should continue the woodworking project by installing the joists and the decking boards.
Therefore, in order to get consistent gaps between the components, we recommend you to place nails at both ends, between the boards.
When installing the slats, we strongly recommend you to make sure the head of the screws is at the same level as the floor’s surface.
Therefore, we strongly recommend you to check out the outdoor deck plans, in which we show you how to lay out the deck properly and build the concrete footings.
Place a spirit level on the beams and check if they are level and make the necessary adjustments, if needed.
As you can see in the image, you need to place the joists equally spaced, every 16″ on center. In order to lock the beams into place, you should slip the hanger around the joists and drive nails trough the hanger.
In order to provide extra-support to the frame, we recommend you to add a twist fastener where the joists crosses the support beams. Alternate the location of the blockings, as in the image, otherwise you won’t be able to insert the screws. Therefore, snap a chalk line from one end of the deck to the other, about 1″ from the frame. In order to get the job done as a professional, we recommend you to apply several coats of paint to the components.

If you want to add character to your patio or deck, a lounge chair is perfect, as it is a straight forward project that doesn’t require a large investment. Nevertheless, you should still use the same woodworking techniques described in this project, even if the components would have other dimensions. There are many designs and shapes you could choose from,  but in this article we show you plans for a simple lounge chair, that can be built in just a weekend. As you an see in the image, you should round the top ends of the side braces, in order to flip properly. In order to get the job done in a professional manner, you should make sure the backrest is horizontal, when drilling the pilot holes. Insert the bolts and tighten the nuts properly, making sure you don’t damage the lumber. Leave the compound to dry out for several hours, before sanding the wooden surface with a sander (use 120- sander), along the wood grain. If you want to see more outdoor plans, check out the rest of our step by step projects and follow the instructions, in order to obtain a professional result.
Generally speaking, the building requirements vary according to the local requirements, as they are developed according to the soil structure and weather conditions specific to your location.
Nevertheless, you should level the joists first and lock them into place with several C-clamps. Framing the floor using these techniques would provide support to the whole structure of the gazebo. Use a good miter or circular saw to get the job done accurately, using the information you can see in the image.
Alternatively, you could drill pilot holes trough the rim joists and insert 3” screws. Generally speaking, there are many patterns you could choose from, but the most appropriate one for this type of floor frame would be parquet pattern. In this manner, you will increase the rigidity of the frame and prepare the gazebo for installing the roof.
Cut the plates at the right size (use the information from the material list) and secure them to the posts with 3” wood screws. Therefore, check if the screws are inserted properly and if their heads are level with the wooden surface.

If you want to see more outdoor plans, I recommend you to check out the rest of the projects. If you like to spend time in your garden, but a simple outdoor bench is a little too common for your tastes, you should consider building a nice wooden bench with two planters attached on both sides.
There are many designs and shapes you could choose from, starting with a simple bench adjacent to a large planter, up to more complex constructions, such as a wooden bench attached to two planters. Work with good judgement, making sure all the components are aligned, before driving in the screws. In order to add personality to the planter bench, we recommend you to build the trims from 2×4 lumber.
Make sure the large planters are aligned properly, before building the wooden bench between them. This outdoor bench is extremely sturdy and if you invest in weather resistant lumber, such as cedar or redwood, it will be the attraction point of your backyard for many years in a row. In addition, you need to make sure the edges are perfectly flush before inserting the screws and nails. You don’t have to fit large containers to the planters, as you have an easier alternative to fill them with lively flowers.

If this design is not what you are looking for, I suggest you to take a look over my other projects. I would be thrilled to see how your planter bench looks like so feel free to send a few images. Another method would be to assemble the panels by attaching the braces to the slats and them joint the four sides together. An arbor with a bench will enhance the appearance of your garden and will add a romantic effect to your property. In addition, drill the holes when necessary and join them together properly with decking screws. Although there are many options you can choose from, in terms of design, shape or size, you should use your creativity and customize the arbor with bench.
In order to build the arched supports, you could join together several segments, or you could buy them from your local diy store. Use a spirit level to align the supports properly and lock them into place with screws, as in the plans.
As you can see in the image, you have to build two frames, that will lock the lattice thoroughly, like in a sandwich. Nevertheless, the side panels have to be perfectly plumb, otherwise the arbor won’t have a nice appearance.
Therefore, you should install 4×4 supports between the sides of the construction, as in the free plans. If you want to enhance the look of your garden, you could attach a romantic arched top, as in the free plans. Let the compound to dry properly, for several hours, before sanding the surface with medium grit sandpaper.

Before driving in the screws, we recommend you to align the slats properly, making sure the diagonals of the lid are equal.
Mark the curved line on the 1×6 boards using a pencil and make the cuts with a jigsaw. Next, sand the wooden surface with 120-grit sandpaper, making sure there is a smooth transition between the patches and the rest of the wood. Make sure you work with attention and plan everything from the very beginning, if you want to prevent potential issues. In addition, leave about  2-3″ between the wall and the joists, in order to get a proper result. After setting the boards to the joists string a chalk line from one end to the other, as to check for depressions and bulges.
Don’t forget to share our projects with your friends, by using the social media widgets. Choose the chair design that fits your needs and tastes, before buying quality materials for the job. In order to secure the legs to the frame, you should notch the top part with a circular saw. Assemble the components together with 2” screws, after drilling pilot holes in the lumber. In addition, if you build it next to an outdoor kitchen, the gazebo can turn to a perfect place for taking dinner. Therefore, make sure you take a look on the related articles, to see the rest of the steps. Check the corners for squareness, by using a large L-square or by applying the well known 3-4-5 rule. Before attaching the joists into place, we strongly recommend you to make sure they are perfectly level. From our own experience, we can assert that using joist hangers provides extra-support to the gazebo floor and is a stylish solution. In addition, a carport usually requires a building permit, so you should choose the plans that comply with the legal requirements.

There are many other designs and plans to choose from when building projects for your backyard, so make sure you take a close look over the related plans that are featured on our site.
Plumb the legs and make sure the corners are right-angled before inserting the galvanized screws into place. From our experience, you should always adjust the size and the design of the bar, as to fit your needs and tastes. Drive nails trough the trims or dill pocket holes at both ends of the slats and insert screws. If you are all about rustic charm and you want to keep the costs down, you need to pay attention to these wood bar plans.
After selecting the right plans for your needs, you should buy quality materials for the job, such as cedar, redwood or pine slats.
Work with great care, making sure the corners are square and the joists perfectly aligned one with another.
Use a spirit level to make sure the walls are perfectly plumb, otherwise the planter won’t be symmetrical. Use a spirit level to plumb the supports before securing them with screws to the planters, otherwise the seat won’t be perfectly horizontal. Drill pilot holes trough the slats, countersink them and insert the 2” screws, or drive the screws trough the supports in the slats. You can 1×2 fit cleats to the interior of the planters and then create a false bottom just a few inches from the top.
If you are looking for ways to create a beautiful relaxation area, building a arbor bench is one of the bench solutions, as it is easy to build and doesn’t require a significant investment. If you live in a windy area, we recommend you to anchor the arbor bench into place,  by attaching metal brackets to a concrete slab. The width of the arbor can vary, according to needs, but you should remember it will also influence the width of the bench seat. Drill several pilot holes in the components, before inserting the screws, in order to prevent the wood from splitting.
If you plan to  place the bench in your backyard, you need to buy weather-resistant lumber, such as cedar, redwood or pine.
Afterwards, apply a good wood filler in the holes, let it dry out properly and sand the surface thoroughly, before applying the final coats of stain.
Use quality pressure-treated lumber, otherwise the frame won’t be rigid enough to support your weight.
Nevertheless, you should leave about 1″ from the edges, in order to prevent the wood from splitting. Cedar, redwood or pine are great choices, as these components would look great and be highly durable. Pre-drill the wooden components before inserting the screws, to prevent the wood from splitting. Plan everything from the very beginning, otherwise you could be taken aback by many potential issues, during the construction process. Building a carport is not all about functionality but also an opportunity to enhance the design of your property.
