Patio furniture

Hello all I am a definite beginner looking to build my own patio furniture. I'm looking for a challenge and something to keep me busy. Any help on tools and supplies required? I live in Florida near the beach and have some cool designs that I want make come to life. Any help/input would definitely be appreciated!

Do you have any current tools? Circular saw or hammer? We can then make some suggestions.

Great, that is helpful. Now you say you have some designs in mind you would like to come to life. Are there any pictures of these designs online that you could link for references. I think the would help people give you material or supply suggestions.

Create a photobucket account. Upload your pictures to there. Then as an option you can resize your photos to fit our screens better by selecting 640x480 resolution. Then to post to the forum when in photobucket hover your mouse over your picture and under it click where it says IMG Code, it will automatically copy it to your clipboard, then just right click and paste into your post.

Here's some pieces I've made. I made them mostly from scrap dimensional lumber I had left over after I framed my shop.

I made some templates of the curved pieces so I can duplicate them easily.
