A bench seat can give you a new seating area as well as giving you quite a bit of handy storage space and the best thing you can make. It yourself easy as I'll show you how to build a quart of the bench seat with storage and the Box cushions too now. The easiest way to start this project is by making yourself a template. Now the standard height for a beam seat is between 400 and 450 millimeters high.
So I'm gonna make mine 400 millimeters high, because I've got a relatively fixed squad that I'm gonna put on later, and my bench seat is going to be 1880 long. The width of my seat will be 480 millimeters. You can make this whatever works for you and I'm gonna put a 15-degree angle on the front. So when you're sitting on it, your heels, don't hurt or scuff the front of the board. It's also a little bit more comfortable. That angle leaves our bottom measurement at 380 millimeters now, so I'm going to start marking this out on a sheet of ply. I'm gonna make my cell on the bottom, 380 millimeters and the height I've got 400 millimeters.
Now, the top of my seat, I'm gonna make 480 millimeters wide so effectively. That gives me a 15-degree angle so that there is going to be the shape of our seat. Now, before I cut this out, what I'm going to do is take off the thickness of my front panel, so I'm going to use some 18 multiple for our front panel and also for the top. So what I'm gonna do is just use a scrap piece of timber, mark the thickness of that and take that off that top measurement as well. Okay, so this template is going to set me up for the rest of the job. Now the easiest way to cut this is by using a circular saw because most people have one of these at home.
