Intro: 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
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
