How to Make a Modern Outdoor Sofa
To do so, we need 9 pieces of 2×4 @72″, 13 pieces of 2×4 @ 25.5″, 2 pieces of 2×4 @ 28.5″ boards. Apart from these, we need wood glue, sandpaper, some relevant tools like saw, measuring tape, square, drill with driver and mini pocket hole jig.
First of all cut the boards perfectly with the help of a saw.
To do it, place 72″ two boards keeping 25.5″ distance from each other and put five more 25.5″ boards inside the two long boards 16″ apart. It will look like a ladder.
Attach these five boards with the long two, by 2.5″ self-taping exterior decking screws using the drill bits.
Now it is time to frame the arms. Attach the 28.5″ armrest to the 25.5″ two legs. Use 2.5″ exterior decking screws. Then add a support of 25.5″ board at middle or 14″ up from the bottom of the legs horizontally.
To complete the arms, include another piece of board underneath. We’ll utilize this board to tie into the seat frame. In this way will make another arm frame, using the same screws. Thus make two arms for the both sides of the sofa. After this step we are in the middle of our learning, that how to make a couch from pallets for your patio.
