Weatherly patio set-modified

Submitted by jazydoodle on Sun, 06/26/2011 - 11:21

We have been searching for 3 years to find a sectional that would fit around our fire pit. The only thing we ever found were two curved sofas that cost $5000 needless to say, we kept looking. When I saw the weatherly plans I knew that I could modify them to curve around the fire pit. The piece is made up of three sofa sized pieces and connected by two triangular pieces. The HARDEST part of this project was finding the dimensions for the triangle pieces. It took 2 days, my dad and brother throwing trigonometry formulas at me, and a lot of trial and error. After that it was easy! I combined the plans for the sofa and the loveseat, so the loveseat would have the ends on them.

Estimated Cost
$200 for wood. $300 for cushions
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Pine
Finish Used
I used a primer, then a solid stain.
Recommended Skill Level
Intermediate

I am building a "bench in the backyard" and agonized about using an angle other than 90 degrees. I finally decided to go simple and easy as possible. We will see soon if it works out.

Isn't it so wrong that the wood for this whole project cost LESS than the cushions!

I am so envious of wherever you live. Beautiful!

But I think my triangular sections would be raised (to cushion height) table tops...

Now to build a deck so I can build THIS!!!
