There are a lot of different DIY projects out there that utilize the great resources all around us in nature. It makes you feel good for using natural resources and not letting things go to waste like fallen trees. We stumbled across a great DIY project that took several logs and strapped them together in order to form a lounger that is modern and built out of a very simple supplies. The DIYer is an obvious partner of Ryobi which means that we like them even more because 90% of the tools we have are actually Ryobi.
This project was pretty easy and simple to complete and used only a few tools. You need logs, a chainsaw, so log screws, and a few brackets for extra enforcement. It looks like the layout of the logs are what need to be decided first after you have sawed the logs off into the proper measurements. You basically go from log to log screwing each one into the next and then once you have the logs all together, you use the brackets to reinforce each one so it can fully support the weight of a large person (like most of our readers probably are). The thing we like the most about this lounger is that it is pretty versatile in the different settings it can adapt to with the different designs. Anything wood can always fit within a more rustic look and feel design but if you use the right type of wood you can make this DIY lounger fit within a modern looking setting as well. We encourage each person to go check out the step by step process and try making one of these for your place (be sure to take some creative liberties and see what modifications you can make to it).
