  • Cut the 2x6s.

    Cut 5 pieces of 2x6 at a length of 96".

    Cut 2 pieces of 2x6 at a length of 72".

    Cut 6 pieces of 2x6 at a length of 28".

  • Assemble the leg panels.

    Use pocket holes to connect the pieces. I placed the holes on the inside or under side of the pieces so that they would be less visible.

  • Assemble the sofa.

    Screw the leg panels to the first four seat boards leaving 1/4" gaps. (Used a ruler for spacing)

    Screw the angle supports to seat panels with pocket holes.

    Cut notches in the last seat boards to fit around angle supports.

    Screw on back rest boards.

  • Seal & add cushions

    Seal your sofa, add cushions, and enjoy!
