EP. 66 DIY PLATFORM BENCH WITH BUILT IN SIDE TABLE
This project is the combination of a lot of inspiration pieces. That's all in the video and I don't need to explain it here. Below is a cut list and supplies list. I made my bench a little tall. I've already adjusted the dimensions in the plans.
MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES:
1/2 sheet of 3/4" plywood (I used maple)
Edge banding: http://amzn.to/2r7TKb8
Pocket Hole Jig: http://amzn.to/2sFRmdA
Cushion (Thanks mom)
14" Bottom Mount Drawer Slides: http://amzn.to/2s6E9NP
Drawer Pulls: https://www.brusso.com/dp-101/
Minwax Polycrylic: http://amzn.to/2r4wz6q
Plywood: 16" wide
1 @ 48"
1 @ 16"
I started by cutting a piece of 3/4" plywood to 16" wide.
Next, I used a circular saw and clamping straight edge to cut my plywood to size.
I used edge banding to hide the ply's on the edge of the plywood.
Pocket holes are a quick and easy way to attach the three pieces of the end table.
There's not room to attach the assembly to the platform though. The pocket screw bit s too long, instead I attached it from underneath.
I used glue and brad nails to make a quick drawer. No dimension just because you'll need to measure to fit you own end table. Just in case there are variances.
After attaching the drawer face, I screwed in the drawer pull.
Pocket screws and glue are a quick and strong method of making the bottom assembly.
My mom was nice enough to sew a cusion for me, if that's not an option for you check out an upholstry shop, or pre-made outdoor/indoor cushions and build to fit that.
Thanks for looking, if there's anything else I can help with either contact me through email or instagram DM (for a quicker response) @modernbuilds
