I have grown to LOVE this common wooden structure that so often goes unnoticed and tossed aside after it’s initial job of assisting in the transportation of something. We were able to acquire 6 pallets that were no longer needed at a job site, bought some screws, a 4×4 post and a sheet of plywood and got to work. Because the pallets are able to hold their own in weight and structure, all we had to do stand them up on end, put them in an L shape, screw them to the deck and then together and the basis of our bar was set. I bought a few things at the Aloha Market (read about it here) to complete our tiki look and now all we need is to stock the bar and have a party!

You could take plywood, stain it and then score it with steel wool or even hammer it, then seal it with a poly coat. Did you do both sides of the table before you secured it or did you only do the top and the edge? It is from the blue cloth I laid on the plywood before applying the modpodge and pour on surfacing product.
There are several designs you could choose when building the deck box, so take a look over the alternatives before starting the construction project. Make sure you follow us on Facebook to be the first that gets our latest plans and for some other exclusive content. Also, follow us on Pinterest to get many ideas for your backyard from all the internet! Plumb the legs with a spirit level and check if the corners are right-angled before inserting the screws.
After building the frame of the deck box, we recommend you to attach the side walls between the wooden posts. Top Tip: Make sure the corners are square and insert the screws through the supports into the slats.
One of the last steps of the project is to attach the trims to the exterior of the deck box.
Align the trims with great care before locking them into place, if you aim for a professional result. With the help of my friend Shane today, I am so excited to introduce plans for a more contemporary outdoor lounge chair.
This chair fits the Restoration Hardware Belvedere Cushions, some colors on sale right now.
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Now, make a table of all the molded dimensions of the pieces and divide each one by this factor of 4.


After you have done the conversion, do a "sanity check" to see whether any of the molded dimension changes affect joint design.
The only problem is that cushions are odd sized and it's hard to find an affordable replacement.
For the cushion problem - I recently built a sofa and two chairs and the best cushion option I found was to buy a memory foam mattress.
Location: maine you could use marine grade ply,,and rivet in supports to your boat to hold your deck,,,,how far from the bottom of your hull are you planning on comming up with your deck?. Location: maine so bob,,,,,you just want a steering wheel and seat?,,,not the whole deck (floor)?,,,,if thats all your looking for,,,it shouldnt actually be that hard ( well not as hard as doing a whole deck). Location: Maine Sorry, I do not mean a floor (deck) just a small fishing boat that I want to look like an outboard runabout with a 3 foot long cover on the front so it looks good, maybe with some painted in caulking to look like narrow planks. Most of the small (15') aluminum skiffs are not welded material they're riveted with heavy extrusions rolled and mounted on the hull panel edges. Welding a flange to this is pretty expensive, relative to the project scope, so I'd investigate if the extrusion were shaped so the ply foredeck could be mounted directly to that existing hull metal? Decking this with ply, glued and screwed to the two main side-to-side (transverse cambered frames) and the sheer clamp, would make a find job of this conversion.
There is a plywood made to simulate teak and butyl calked strip planked decks that may be available thin enough to form over this small area? In most of the small open press formed aluminum skiffs I've seen the topsides are (far) too low for this deck to have the controls as high as a runabout does. Wood will work for aluminum boat modifications of this scale if the wood is sealed as much as possible and bedded (glued with a thick rubbery sealant type adhesive) well. Lunds, Gregors, and Starcraft of this size all seem to be much lower depth than what looks like would be needed. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. I have everything else in place, just wondering how you attached the plywood to the top of the pallets? Building a deck storage box is easy and it will enhance the look of your property, so make sure you plan everything form the very beginning. Invest in high quality lumber, such as redwood, pine or cedar, especially if the components will be exposed to bad weather. As you can notice in the image, we recommend you to cut the slats at the right size and lock them together to the frame with galvanized screws. Therefore, you need to cut both ends of the 1×2 trim at 45 degrees and lock them to the wooden structure with finishing nails and waterproof glue.


Apply several coats of stain or paint to the components, in order to protect them from decay. If you want to see more outdoor plans, we recommend you to check out the rest of our step by step projects.
Also, look to see if the resultant slat widths (the molded face width of each slat) are close to some "standard" or easily re-sawn dimension.
One alternative (and my plan) is to buy cushions elsewhere and then tweak the build plans to fit my cushions.
My kids can be a little wild sometimes and I'm concerned about them running to jump into the chair and possibly loosening or pulling the back section off of the arms.
I want to try the second recipe with the flour, sugar, etc but i’m worried it won’t turn out how yours did! Been trying to figure out what to use to seal the wood on the bar and the foot rails around the bottom.
My problem is I’m going for the Bushveld look and the blue counter top will not look as good as yours.
Use quality materials and always take accurate measurement before cutting the components at the right size. Smooth the wooden surface with fine-grit sandpaper, if you want to enhance the appearance of the project. I was going to go with adirondack chairs, but these have to be way more comfortable and they look awesome.
If so, look at re-jiggering the gap spacings and counts to suit the standard, while still keeping the overall scale. An idea I have is to use 2X4 for the arms instead of 1X4 and then use lag bolts thru the back section and into the arms.
Fill the holes with putty and attach trims to the box, in order to get a professional result.
I'm sure there are several ways to beef up the support for the back section, but this is what I'll probably end up doing. I understand you poured on the goop which dried like a clear laquer but at what point and what materials did you make it blue?
