PARKERSBURG, W.VA. (PRWEB) March 17, 2016 - As summer approaches, Woodcraft is ready to help customers build outdoor furniture with easy-to-use plans that include tips and instruction. The woodworking retailer also stocks products that help customers give existing furniture a new look – maybe distressed or antiqued or a brand-new color.
“Woodcraft offers nearly three dozen building plans for the popular Adirondack chair in several styles – rocker, loveseat, folding, twin adjustable, chaise lounge, child size, and footstools,” Woodcraft product manager Ben Bice said. “Other seating plans feature Tudor style chairs, folding sling chairs, and patio rockers. Adirondack chair building templates are also available.”
To accommodate outdoor dining, Bice said Woodcraft offers plans to build picnic table-bench combos that range from the traditional shape to an octagonal version. Bench plans feature seats with and without backs/arms in various styles such as Tudor, Lutyens, English, and arched. Traditional porch swing plans come in several styles, some with frames for yard use, and glider plans are also available.
“We also stock plans for less common features such as tree seats, garden trellises, footbridges, birdhouses, and even a camp kitchen,” Bice said.
“Once you have selected your wood, something rot-resistant like cypress, cedar, locust or white oak, the 7.0 amp variable-speed Bosch Barrel Grip Jigsaw, with a tool-less blade-change system, will make cutting chores easy,” national power tool sales manager Andrew Bondi said. Bondi also suggested keeping the 30" x 24" lightweight, portable QuikBENCH handy to provide a ready work surface equipped with a vise, a 15-amp, three-outlet power strip, and four bench dogs. More benches can be added if a larger surface is needed.
To join furniture pieces, product manager Peter Collins said, “The Kreg Jig HD Starter Kit will do the job easily using pocket-hole joinery. The Kreg Jig® HD is made to work with 1-1/2" and thicker material to build outdoor furniture, fences, trellises, and more. Kreg Jig® HD Screws are #14 hardened-steel screws with a Protec-Kote™ finish that has three anti-corrosion layers.”
Other tools, supplies and hardware that come in handy for furniture projects include:
“Selecting a finish offers the opportunity to customize furniture for your family’s tastes and lifestyle,” product manager Kent Harpool said. “Color and special effects options are the ‘tools’ for this creative endeavor.”
