1. 3d Design and modeling
Whenever I make something, It always starts in modeling software called solidworks.That is very useful especially if you don’t know how your end product is going to look like. I copied the design from a gif I found on the internet because it looks really simple to make. It is just a few planks screwed together and a big plywood board in the middle. On the bottom of the board I am going to put a foam to protect your knees from hurting and that is pretty much it.
2. Cutting Down the Planks
I have used an old wooden plank with just the right width I could make 2 sides with a single board. The only thing was to cut it on length and later cut it in half. With a planer I flatten both sides and after that I sand all surfaces to remove an old grainy pattern from planks. After that I cut another 44cm plank on which we are gonna sit later on. Again, few strokes with planer, a bit of sanding and we can already assemble it together.
3. Join Them Together
I drilled 4 holes on each side to prevent screws from splitting the wood and before tighten them up make sure both planes are perfectly lined up. After that, I drilled some holes for the top board and before screwing that on I coated it with light brown color.
4. Painting and Testing
When the paint was dry I secure the board to the frame and it was finally ready to be tested. On the bottom I placed a foam to protect your knees because after some time it can get very uncomfortable to sit steady and relaxed. And there we have it. Yes I know hah that was probably the most useless project so far but hey, it looked cool and it is really funny to sit on and have some drink with a friend.
