The log lounger is a great way to turn yard waste that would end up in landfills or a fireplace, into sturdy outdoor furniture. For full instructions go to.
I got these birch logs from a landscaping company that had been hired to clear a piece of land. I recommend using logs between 3″ and 6″ in diameter.
Larger diameter logs can be used but can be difficult to drill through and connect. They also can get pretty heavy.
I used zinc-coated lag screws to connect the logs together. The lag screws are the most expensive part of this project.
I used ¼” lag screws 6″ long for most of the logs and a couple 9″ long ones for the bigger logs. 3-4 screws per log will do the trick. If you are using smaller logs, you can get away with using cheaper deck screws.
