Hey guys!! As promised, I am sharing the free plans and how-to video for our DIY Farmhouse Club Chair!

DIY Farmhouse Club Chair

This guy is so big, so cozy and an easy build! Did I mention I only spent $80 in lumber to build it? Come join us in our shop and see just how easy it is to build! You can click HERE or the image below to watch the video!

So fun!!! Make sure you download the FREE printable plans HERE and follow along with us as we build it below!

DIY Farmhouse Club Chair – The Build

Before I started, I ripped the rounded edges off of the 2×6 and 2×4 boards. This is not a necessary step but if you choose not to, make sure to adjust the measurements accordingly. Make sure to check our our How to Rip Edges video HERE!

Once the edges were ripped an my cuts were made, I drilled pocket holes, with my Kreg Jig, in the appropriate boards. Refer to the plans for the proper pocket hole placement. Check out our favorite Kreg Jig model HERE!

DIY Farmhouse Club Chair – Side Frames

DIY Farmhouse Club Chair - starting the build

The first building step is to build the side frames. To do this I attached the post pieces to the top piece. I used 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws and wood glue. Do this for both side frames.

I cut the apron cleats to size and attached them to the inside of the aprons with 1 1/4″ brad nails and wood glue.

When you build the other side frame, make sure that the apron cleats “mirror” each other.

    I used the plans at www. EasyWoodwork.org to build mine – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha!

    Great work! Do you have a tutorial for the pillows?

    Love this DIY project. I will only add that you can use coconut oil to refinish the wood. Just take a cloth and rub it into the wood. It will make it shinier and give it a “hydrate” look. Thank you for sharing this! Bookmarked it for the spring! ^^

    Love the club chair. Will be making this after the holidays. Question tho… Is it a low sitting chair? Maybe that’s what a club chair is. I may need to add length to the legs. Arthritic knee doesn’t want to lift me much anymore. Lol. Good job girls, again.

    Love this! But, now you’ve got me wanting to put all my Christmas projects on the back burner to bust some of these out 😉 Thanks for another awesome idea!
