I began a search for barstool plans that looked nice and wouldn’t be too difficult to make since we are no experts at furniture building. So, once again we looked to www.Ana-white.com (obviously my new favorite website) for some ideas. We decided to make ours with 1x4s rather than 1x3s to make it a little more sturdy and added a low back to it. Here’s how ours turned out:
This is how we built the bar stool: What do you need to buy?
1 – 12 ft 1×2
1-10 ft 1×4
1-8 ft 1×4
How to cut?
Make the seat frame then attach the seat boards from the underside with 2″ screws
Underside of seat
View from the top side
Seat attached from underside
Step 3) front and back legs go on next
Attach front and back legs to frame
Step 4) Attach back rest. We just glued and clamped ours until it was dry so there wouldn’t be any brackets or screws in the way.
Step 5) Attach the footrests
sand and stain/paint
Hope that makes sense and that someone else will build a few of these for their outdoor bar or kitchen island bartop! hint hint.
