Nevertheless, remember that you should make sure the structure is rigid enough to supports your weight.

Use silicone to cover the bottom part of the legs, especially if they are in contact with the ground. Invest in quality materials, such as pressure-treated, cedar or pine. You could use redwood as well, but it will increase the total costs of the project with about 50%.

Smooth the edges of the components with sandpaper and round the exposed ones with a router. It is essential to pay attention to all these preliminary steps, if you want to get the job done in a professional manner. Apply a few coats of exterior paint to the components, to protect them from decay and sunlight.
