Thread: Neat project

  1. #1

    Neat project

    Saw this on FB, thinking about maybe making it as a Mother's Day present. Does anyone have plans or know how the sides are made? I can't tell if it's a single piece of plywood or maybe two put together... The description says 2-day build and $57.

    Looks to me to be Baltic Birch Plywood maybe 3/4" What ever it is pretty neat and looks so comfortable.

    The sides definitely look doubled up. Pretty cool looking!

    I thought about 3/4" plywood but it looks thicker?? I'm a 300 lb'er I wonder if that's sturdy enough?

    Yeah, At LEAST doubled up on the 3/4" ply looking at it. Hard to tell. Heck, depending on the quality of the ply, I could see tripling it up.

    It would be the side to side wiggling that I would worry about, plus it'd be tempting to grab that top awning support to get in and out.

    I like the looks of that. I can see Brent's point about side to side wiggling, but I think 3/4" would be sufficient thickness as long as you have a very stout and secure connection for each of the cross members. That said, thicker sides would make it easier to achieve that stout and secure connection.

    Neat item. Definitely looks thicker than 3/4". Seems to lazy me plywood wood be the only way to go. Ply and jigsaw and dowels.

    Man that is cool! I'd be afraid to fall asleep in it around my son in law's, could imagine them trying to "roll" me across the yard in it!! It does look comfy!

    Shooting you in the head is a 17 step process? Never knew it would be that complicated, lol!
