We're gonna learn how to build this beautiful, modern outdoor sectional gym. Take us through the features of this project. Well, it's very adaptable. We start with the 24 by 24 cushions from a big-box retailer. You can get tons of these things online, any size that kind of determines what its gonna look like. You can easily remove one cushion shorten it up. Do all that. Another thing is, it's got. The modern chunky ends great for putting a ball of wine or a glass on something like that. Almost like a built-in side table it is, it is another thing, is it's, it's quite lightweight, so three people can easily move this thing around it. For transport. Five screws take it apart, so it's easy to throw in a truck and move around if you want to, we fastened it together because we want to avoid the pitfall of a lot of this furniture where they're they move apart and floating all around yeah. This maintains all the nice clean and, of course, we're using Western redcedar for this project because it's naturally resistant to rot decay and insects, making it ideal for all outdoor projects and, let's face it, nothing looks smells or feels quite like Western redcedar. Absolutely, let's get started, what's the first step first step is to acquire the material and cut it all to its various lengths.
This is all standard dimension material, so that makes it quite easy. This, for instance, is a 2-byte, so it's available anywhere. We use miles and miles of this for decking. I was on one the other day that we go up 30 years ago and it still looks great. Who speaks a lot to the durability of this product sure does and for this project. We're gonna use a beautiful knotty grade of western red cedar, which is really gonna. Add a lot of warmth and texture to the project, plus it's a cost-effective choice. Totally. Alright, let's get started on the frame, can't wait, so it's really starting to come along beautifully. We've got the frame all built Jim, any pro tips yeah just a couple. One is this is the point where you start to think about how you're gonna pull it apart when you want to move it. So if I've marked, we put it together with five screws, there marks with circles so that somebody coming along later will know which ones to remove. Also, we've shim level at the floor and here is not level so that when we build it, it'll it'll remain true and would have moved to its new home, a level deck and in terms of fasteners. What are we using for this project? We're using three-inch number eight stainless steel wood screws and we do that because they stand up well for elements to the wall.
It's no and for more detailed instructions. You can go to real cedar comm for free downloadable, building plans. So the backrest frames are all installed and it's very sturdy. Yet the wood is surprisingly lightweight yep. What cedar is all about lightweight strong, easy to work with, and that's why carpenters love it. So, what's the next step next step is to install the slots, the cushions will sit on they'll be installed to remove oil panels for ease of transport and storage, great , and you just slide it in there great design, Jim and another great thing about this project is just how green it is, in fact, using wood such as western red cedar leaves the smallest carbon footprint than any other building material. So, what's a choice, you can feel good about what's right and what's the last step the last step is to clad the back of the seat here or, let's call it the front of the seat. We could also clad the back if it was gonna show this one's gonna tuck into an area, and it's not gonna show. But you do have that option great looking forward to seeing the finished product.
