Rustic outdoor furniture is not difficult to make and is suitable for the outdoors. Green wood that has undergone seasoning for a year is the best for making such furniture. Avoid using wood that is downed, dead or dry because insects may have infested it or may contain fungus. Consequently, as you make the furniture you will have problems.
Nails and glue should not be used to secure the pieces together when making rustic outdoor furniture. The best method is utilizing mortise which is an old technology. It is best for such furniture since it is through wood shrinkage that pieces are secured together.
