How to make the seat

You require six pallets to make a good couch seat. However, you should ensure the pallets have the same size. Place three pallets in a horizontal direction on the ground. Make an L shape by putting three other pallets above those in a horizontal direction. Now make a double layer of the seat. The double layer makes the chair stable and firm, besides giving it an elevation. Ensure the seat is sufficiently stable and reliable since it is the primary section of the couch, which is depended on by other parts of the seat for support.

How to make the backrest

Constructing the backrest of the sofa is challenging, but that should not discourage you from making it. The initial step is to dismantle the seat bottom layer and the solid wooden blocks that are on the lower side. You should leave the middle blocks and the top coat. Use three pallets to make the frame of the backrest. Now attach the frame to the top layer, but ensure they are perpendicular to each other. The three pallets of the frame might not cover the whole seat, but it should not worry you. To fix the problem, construct a divan at one side of the L-shaped seat.
