General Instructions: 

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!

Dimensions are shown above
Cut List: 

2 - 2x4 @ 96"
4 - 2x4 @ 31 1/4"
6 - 2x6 @ 96"
3 - 2x6 @ 48"
4 - 2x2 @ 16"
3 - 2x6 @ 37"

NOTE: You most likely won't have to cut the 96" boards

Step 1: 

Build the base as shown above. I built mine with pocket holes (1 1/2" setting and 2 1/2" pocket hole screws) but you could also countersink 2 1/2" self tapping exterior screws. use glue and adjust for square when done.

NOTE: Pocket hole users may wish to also drill holes facing upward for attaching boards in next step - it's up to you.

Step 2 Instructions: 

Attach decking boards starting at back and working inward. Leave 1/2" gap in between.

Step 3 Instructions: 

Then attach 2x2s to the top using 1 1/2" pocket hole and 2 1/2" pocket hole screw with glue.

Step 4 Instructions: 

Attach back base board to both 2x2 and 2x6 decking.

Step 5 Instructions: 

Attach top back boards, same as you did the bottom back boards.

Step 6 Instructions: 

Split the difference and attach center back boards.

NOTE: We felt that our back was plenty sturdy, but if you have concerns about the open end of the sectional not being sturdy enough for your use, I recommend adding a metal L bracket on the inside. This will further secure the back.

Preparation Instructions: 
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
