I used pine wood (spruce) for the frame. This is a soft wood that's easy to work with.
We got the cushions at a webshop here in The Netherlands that sells custom made cushions. That way we could get the cushions to fit the couch lids perfectly and choose our own fabric. We chose an artificial leather because it's easy to clean.

Very impressive! Thanks for sharing!
Very cool project and so easy to make!I would suggest adding a removable lid to the cup with the light bulb so you can change bulbs. Cut the bottom out of the cup and add a thick rim to the inside of the cup so the bottom can't fall through. Leave two gaps in the rim so the bottom piece (with light fitting) can pass through. I don't know if this makes sense ;) I can add a sketch later
This looks amazing! Great job and thanks for sharing!

Very cool! Texture looks amazing!
In our case we handed out the treasure maps to the kids in my son's class and they could search for their spot on the island one by one and 'dig' for the treasure. We used small treasure chest candy boxes that are sold at our local supermarket.
The ghost will scare all the monsters away ;)
Thanks! And remember you only need a few small pieces to create one of these!
In that case you will have to make one large Scrappy Sr. and put all the little ones on it's back ;)
Would love to see what creatures you have hiding in that bin ;)
Thank you! Of course you can also paint your own island and decorations, but the files might give some makers a headstart :)
You are absolutely right! No excuses needed to make things that make you smile!
Thanks! An advent calendar would also be a very good way to count down towards your birthday party and build the excitement!
Treasure Tabby already said it above: if you think it's fun there is no reason you shouldn't do it. You can put your favourite sweets in and randomly pick a treasure map each day to see if you are lucky. Or just play the game with family or friends. Instead of sweets you could even put in gifts or tiny pieces of paper with challenges on them.
Very cool! Love the succulents in between the chess board pieces! Gives it a nice 'ancient' look to it that works very well with the concrete. Deserved win in the contest!
Very nice! Thanks for making this detailed instructable. Only problem with this is that I'd want to have this workbench to be able to make this workbench ;)
Thank you for sharing this! I would love to have one of these instead of the bulky expensive store-bought ones. It is a complicated build however so I just hope I will get around to making this someday.
Very nice job! Thanks for sharing your build. The effect works much better than I would have imagined. Definetely inspired to make one for myself someday, be it a bit more modern-looking. Or maybe a tiny one to put on my desk for fun...

Can you send me a screenshot of what Cura shows as missing sections? I've used Ultimaker Cura to print 3 of these successfully and I know from experience that Cura can sometimes give warnings that do not affect the print at all. In TinkerCAD, are you missing geometry or do you mean you can see the parts that Cura says are missing?
The measurements are indeed all in metric, in millimeters. For us here in Europe those are the standard measurements ;) The dimensions I used are a suggestion and are based on available materials in local stores which means those will probably be different for you. The best thing to do is check your local store and adjust the dimensions to fit the available materials in order to prevent waste.
Thanks for the suggestion, Leon! This is definitely an option. In my case we use the bench to store closed boxes mostly, so it is no problem that it's open. Also we didn't want a gap underneath so dirt doesn't go under. Makes vacuuming easier.I would suggest either placing it on the floor directly or use higher feet that allow a vacuum cleaner underneath. I might add this option to the instructable too.
Thank you for your tip, Chris! Good thing to consider for people wanting to make this indeed. I thought about this but chose the square shape because we thought it looked better.Your example for the angled panels can be combined with the box frame to achieve this. I might add this option to the instructable!

The cushions aren't fixed to the bench. Attaching them to the lids would make them more difficult to open. Now they can simply slide a little when the lid is opened.
