Log Furniture Plans

Log furniture plans can be hard to find, but there are a few good resources that can help you make your own rustic log furniture for your log home or cabin.

Books and resources on woodworking vary greatly in their level of difficulty and expertise, just as woodworkers and carpenters all have different levels of experience.

It’s difficult to write a book that will appeal to every level of workmanship, so before you purchase a book or set of log furniture plans, make sure you understand just how difficult the project will be.

Fortunately, most log home furniture projects can be completed easily by someone who has a little woodworking knowledge and has built one or more easy projects.

Here are some log furniture plans that you might like:

One of the problems that we often see with rustic log furniture plans is that the sizes are approximate or, sometimes they are not even listed.

If you have not had much experience with woodworking or you are not good at estimating or calculating sizes, you need to know that, when you use the measurements given, your project will be the right size and the pieces will all fit together.

Measuring is extremely important. Let’s say that you want to build a queen size log bed. If the log bed plan that you are using only has approximate numbers, measure a queen bed that you like, to get exact numbers. The most important part to get right is the “bed” area where the mattress and box spring will sit.

There is always flexibility in building your own furniture. However, it’s important to keep the old adage in mind: Measure thrice and cut once!

Making Rustic Furniture DVD

A DVD for people who learn visually.
Not everyone learns the same way. If you happen to be a person who learns by watching someone else make or do something, this could be the best way for you to learn about rustic furniture building.

The DVD is a workshop, given by Fine Woodworking, and if you’ve never built a chair before, I highly recommend that you view this DVD. Chairs are probably the most difficult project that you will make for your log or timber home, and it helps to see just how a chair is made and put together.

Fortunately, many of the principles that you’ll learn on this DVD can be applied to other projects. You’ll learn some tips on how to simplify the process, and you will learn how to make rustic furniture the RIGHT way!
