The initial design concept for this was a piece of paper that curved into a seat.

The seat has a mild steel sub-frame and is clad with wood. All screws are screwed from underneath the seat, so that there are no visible screws. The seat bolts to a steel base that is concreted into the ground, which allows the seat to hang over the water feature.
is this made out of cardboard because i have to do this project in technology education.
nope - it has a steel sub-frame which is covered in wood. you could build it out of cardboard but it would not be very robust.
Very pretty design. :)
That is a great design and the pond is the icing on the top. Thanks for the inspiration.
Thanks for your kind comment.<br><br>The pond provides a great atmosphere with the moving water and the design works equally well for a rock swimming pool or hot tub.
thanks again now i guess i we have to get to work this side!!! :)
I absolutely love this!!!!! please post how to make it!!!!!
I've posted a few photos to show the construction of the seat...
Thanks, it's also very comfy to use!<br><br>I'll scratch around for some photos to post... basically, there is a steel base that I concreted into the ground. This was a necessity because it overhangs a water feature and it needed to be sturdy!<br><br>I welded up a steel frame which I curved where needed (eg.the backrest) and this was bolted to the steel base. The wooden boards were screwed on from behind before mounting the seating on the base - I didn't want to see screws on the finished product!<br><br>
Thank you it really means so much!!!
