Pimped Out Bucket Seat



Introduction: Pimped Out Bucket Seat

About: Nothing much about me just that i am young and new at these things

This project is to create a bucket low profile seat for as cheap as possible, we built this for 15euro and lots of scraps.

What you need for this project.
* A Pallet
* Foam (Got from foam shop scaps did because of how we layered it)
* red velvet

* Jicksaw
* glue
* staple gun
* drill

Step 1: Setting Up Lats

Take the pallet take the first layout off from pallet. What we did was put 3/4 of the way threw the wood so that we could bend the wood to contour that we wanted.

Step 2: Cutting Out Curves

We had some small bits of wood left over from another project we where able to put lats up agains the wood and draw out shape to sides of seat.
Take a jicksaw to the line and repaet twice, you may want to cut one side then put lats on and try sitting on it depending on curv you want.

Step 3: Adding the Lats

To add the lats just set up your two curvs side by side then take the curved wood and keep adding them from bottom to top, we screwed into wod and left small gap as we went along.

Step 4: Adding the Foam

To add the foam we used a layered effect to allow bucket seat to slope inwards to to the center. 
To add the foam on bottom layers you can just use staple gun but really as you get further and further up on layer its needed to use glue we used a spay on contact cement glue that we had lying around but you can get proper fabric glue or just longer staples.
In photos you can see how we layered everything.

Step 5: Over All Very Comfy

Over all really happy with it very very comfy and well worth the 15 euro.
