This was a Pinterest find from my wife. Pinterest really does add up the “honey-do list”. This is constructed completely out of 2×4’s. The inspiration site came with a detailed cut list, but I did have to change two things in the list. However, the most frustrating thing was it didn’t come with assembly instructions related to the cut list. This required a lot of dry fitting and tons of screws. Well over 325 of them. My SCMS and impact driver got a lot of use. To put it into perspective, my lithium battery was only good for one chair at a time before I had to switch batteries. I am sure it was ready for a nap when I got done. I posted below, pictures of how it was constructed and my latest episode of Rock-n H Woodshop shows a detailed view on how to make them. Thanks for looking!

Thanks Tony! Yes, we only had 3 inches of space before the door into the house. The other side has just enough room for a potted plant. I will be building a table to sit in front of it that can be used by all that sit on the sectional. Should have that done this week.

Hannah makes anything look gorgeous. I should use her more often

I like this a lot. Wish I had a place for it though. I guess I need to build a deck. Thanks for sharing this.
Can you tell me where you found the cutlist?

I printed that cut list off a long time ago so I do not have access to the website right off the top of my head. I do have the cut list on my video close to the front. And I mention one of the areas that I changed.
Just click or cut and paste this URL to find it.

Yes, you will be. The whole construction process took me 12 hours because it was 325 screws or more in the process of building it. Then about another two hours paining it. I pray that she doesn’t see it because you won’t like me very much after that. Good luck keeping her oblivious. Thank you for looking!

Nice!
Looks like it should last a long time and that’s great because it also looks really comfortable.
