Building a sectional sofa

Building the frame of the chair

Building the frame of the chair

First of all, you need to build the seat frame for the sectional sofa chairs. Cut the components at the right dimensions using 1×4 lumber. Drill pocket holes to the components, as described in the diagram. Align everything with great care and lock them together with 1 1/4″ screws. Add glue to the joints and make sure the corners are right-angled. Make sure the edges are flush before inserting the screws, to get a professional result.

Building the legs

Building the legs

Build the legs for the outdoor sectional sofa out of 1×4 slats. Mark the cut lines on the slats and get the job done with a circular saw. Smooth the edges with fine-grit sandpaper and remove the residues with a damp cloth.

Attaching the legs

Attaching the legs

Continue the project by attaching the legs to the frame of the seat. Align the components with attention and drill pilot holes through the legs. Insert 1 1/4″ screws to lock the legs to the frame of the seat. Plumb the legs with a spirit level and make sure the seat is perfectly horizontal.

Fitting the seat slats

Build the seat for the modular chairs out of 1×4 lumber. Drill pocket holes to the components, as shown in the diagram. Insert 1 1/4″ screws to lock everything together. Add glue to the joints and remove the excess with a damp cloth. Drill pilot holes through the seat slats and insert 1 1/4″ screws into the frame of the chair.

Building the backrest

Building the backrest

Building the backrest of the chair is a straight forward process. Use 1×2 lumber for the top component and 1×4 lumber for the backrest. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the 1×4 slat and secure it to the back legs using 1 1/4″ screws. Secure the top slat to the legs using 1 1/4″ brad nails.

One of the last steps of the woodworking project is to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, fill the pilot holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-grit sandpaper.
