Home - 2021 - Building an outdoor sectional sofa

Photographer: Josh Eckels

Making the first cuts

Experimenting with the pocket hole jig

The frame takes shape

Now sittable

Cushions fit

New clamp speeding things along

The second section, almost done

Clamping the top rail

Two end sections, fully assembled

The corner piece takes shape

Hoping the dimensions are right

They are!

I think I've had this pencil for 35 years! The owl is probably only a decade or two old

Corner assembly not yet complete, but a good sense of the finished dimensions

Corner section fully assembled

Top rail joinery

Ready to be stained


Corner piece stained with both coats

Drying in place

It's done!

Such fine workmanship
