2x4 sofa and chairs

Combined the 2x4 sofa and 2x6 chair plans. Added the extra 2x6 under the arm rest, to keep future pillows from falling through the gap. Great plans! Thanks!

Thank you! Actually added another couch, two side tables, and a ottoman to match! Looks like it came out of a magazine! Planning on doing one of your bedframes next. Love your site!

@papadog - I love your build and the way you iterated on the plans to make it work best for your specific needs. I'm in the process of building off these plans myself, and the one thing I cannot figure out is how the base of the back is intended to be secured to the sides. In the plans (step 7) it just says "secure to the sides using 2 1/2" screws". Am I supposed to drill from the outside of the sides into the back base? I'd like to avoid that, and based on the pictures, it looks like you have. If you can share how you secured the back base to the sides for your build, I would be very grateful.
