What did you make?

My sofa is based on the Jasper and Francisco sofas. I have a dining table bench of 280.0 cm long, as Francisco and Jasper made, but without a drawer. Material is MDF Lakdrager, finished with satin white lacquer. 

How did you make the bench?

After the necessary calculations, drawing and figure work, I had all the wood for the bench (MDF lacquer support and pine beams) cut to size. saw and a few days later my 'construction kit' inside. Kudos to the driver, who carefully loosened everything and counted everything before we brought it in.

I took the time to assemble everything properly (see steps in the photos) . Then a lot of sanding, countersinking of screws, filling, sanding and first layers of varnishing (and first priming the sawn and end edges with MDF primer).

TIPS:


  • use wood glue (in my enthusiasm I forgot to use wood glue between the parts, but they are still stuck well enough)

  • an extra length of beam for the backrest (so that it is even becomes more secure)

  • if possible, screw the backrest to the wall or mitered slats/planks (1 to the wall and 1 to the bench)

  • blindly screw all plates and planks so that you don't have to fill in (much)

  • have a 2.80 meter cushion made to measure with standing seams (we will have the back cushion done) /li>

      

What are the dimensions?

  • Length: 280.0 cm
  • Height: 87, 2 cm
  • Top plank: 278.2 cm I rounded it off instead of having it beveled
