I made this couch out of pine and put a couple of coats of polyurithane on it. I ended up selling it at a consignment auction.

This settle reminds me a bit of my Stickely settle. I like the style of yours very much.

Great piece. I am planning to build a new set of furniture next summer. Did you use plans? Would love additional close-up photos.

Thanks for the comments. CPLUSWoodwoodworker I designed it myself so the plans are in my head. If you wanted some of the demensions I would gladly give them to you. Like the seat part you make as long as you want and make it as deep as you want. I made this couch 6ft long and 2 1/2 ft deep. If you want the demensions I can give them to you.

It is the slats in the back that interested me most. Did you M/T them or ???

CPLUSWoodworker how I did the back wasn’t that hard. With that one I glued two 2×2’s one to the top part and the other to the bottom part. Then I glued and nailed each of the slats to the 2×2’s. When I make another one though I am going to dole pin them together. But you can do it anyway you want to. That is one nice thing about my designs you can change things on them and it won’t mess the project up.

Love this piece—have you made a day-bed along these same lines? My wife is bugging me to do one.

Hi Luckysawdust, I have not made a day-bed like the couch. I have thought of it but haven’t done it. It would be real easy to do though. If you want me to I can give you the rough measurements and you could go from there. Just let me know.
