Nowadays, the most popular wood materials for use in pieces of chaise lounger furniture are cedar and teak. These woods are known for their weatherproof properties as well as their excellent grain patterns.
Before leaping ahead, decide whether you need a chaise lounge for indoor or outdoor use. The outdoor version is able to withstand exposure to weather elements, has a back frame with adjustable angles and wheels at one end of the chair for easier portability. Review the available designs and make your decision based on complexity of the job, available space and budget. You can choose to customize the designs but it's advisable to adhere to the fundamentals and only tweak the aesthetics. Never build on a whim as it's better to have the proper plans or instructions on how to build a chaise lounge in hand. Allocate sufficient working space and prepare the implements beforehand. If need be, invest in the correct tools as there is bound to be more home projects in the pipeline.
Chaise lounges are thought to be modeled on common furniture from previous civilizations. For instance, the Egyptians had a similar piece of furniture that was a combination between a chair and a daybed. They were constructed of sticks and rawhide or sticks and cord. A little later on, the Greeks had a similar chair that was used during gatherings and was called a "kline." The Roman civilizations didnt upholster furniture because their versions were cast in bronze or carefully carved from wood. To make their versions more comfortable they used pillows, blankets and hides. The Romans also added legs.
