“How-to instructions are easy-to-follow, yet challenging enough to keep you interested.”

“Woodcraft Magazine” has released a new book that will help those who build furniture for outdoor spaces, “Building Outdoor Furniture” – 15 how-to projects, plus advice about materials, finishes and outdoor furniture restoration, all taken from the pages of past magazine issues.

The magazine launched its series of special interest books in 2012 with “14 Wooden Boxes You Can Make,” followed over the next few years by “Home Workshop Setup: the Complete Guide,” “Home Workshop Storage: 21 Projects to Build,” “Home Workshop Jigs & Fixtures: 46 Shop-Proven Projects,” “Classic Wooden Toys,” “The Essential Woodturner,” and “The Essential Wood Book.”

Editor Chad McClung explained the choice of outdoor furniture for the eighth book, published by Cedar Lane Press: “Some of our most popular projects have been for use outside, so we selected the best of our unique and useful outdoor projects from over the years and collected them here.”

Projects include a modern Haycock Adirondack Chair, a classic Adirondack Chair, an Adirondack Table and Footstool and an Adirondack Glider. Traditional Outdoor and Octagonal Picnic Tables and Benches, modern High-Top Patio Table and Chair projects, a Porch Swing and two Benches round out the table and seating categories. Other projects include a Potting Bench, Garden Arbor, Arbor Gate and Garden Obelisk.

Regardless of skill level, McClung said builders will find “how-to instructions are easy-to-follow, yet challenging enough to keep you interested. And each of the over a dozen projects would make an excellent long-lasting addition to any patio, porch, or backyard.”

McClung added, “Each chapter features skill-building tips and techniques to add to your shop arsenal. Plus, you’ll find expert advice on the proper materials – wood species, glue, hardware, and finish – to use for outdoor builds.”
