Instructions To Create Patio Bar Stools
If you want to take the comfort of your home to the outside then consider to create bar stools specially designed to be used on the patio. There are instructions to create patio bar stools. First of all, cut 4 2-inch thick cross sections from a log with a diameter of between 12 and 18 inches. These pieces will be the seat of the bar stools. Next you will need 12 leg posts of between 24 and 29 inches in length depending on how tall you want your stools to be. Turn the seat over and determine where the legs will be attached. Trace the end of the leg onto the wood. Then drill a pilot hole into the center of each of these shapes making sure it goes all the way through the wood. Also drill a pilot hole into the center of the leg posts.
Flip the seat over and screw the legs onto the seat through the top of the seat. Test the bar stool to make sure that it is sturdy. If it wobbles then try sanding the bottoms of the leg posts. If you used narrow leg posts you may need to add wood dowels between the leg posts to keep the stool stable. Sand down the bar stools and fill the screw holes with wood putty. Let the putty dry and then sand the areas down so that they are flush with the top of the wood surface. Stain the bar stools and allow it to dry.
