Introduction: Hidden Outdoor Lounge Bench


I wanted to test this design before I built it and thought that Instructables was a good idea.

I wanted to make something to sit on near the fire in the garden.

It should be low to fit the fire.
Foldable to be outside all summer
Have multi purpose.

This is my idea

Step 1: Materials

The materials I want to use is normal plywood which is 20mm thick.

The pictures show the sizes of the materials.
All dimensions are in mm.
1 x Top
1x Buttom
2 x Back/front
2 x End


Step 2: Buttom Frame

The beams are mounted on the buttom in the specified spots and the back is mounted.
The beam is mounted on the back

Step 3: Mounting the Ends

The ends are mounted on the frame setup as specified

Step 4: Mounting Front Beam

The front beam for the fabric is mounted as specified

Step 5: Mounting Fabric

The fabric is mounted from the top of the back beam to the back of the front beam. The idea is to mount the fabric on top of the back with nails and on the buttom of the front with nails

Step 6: Mounting Top

The top is mounted together with the front with a beam and the top is mounted with a hinge.

Step 7: Done

That is all done
