266 - Convertible Bench

266 - Convertible Bench

Welcome to the Honda Ridgeline Saturday Project series produced in partnership with Honda. Each project is designed to be approachable using basic tools and materials. And to show you how versatile the all-new 2017 Honda Ridgeline can be, we'll build each project right in the bed of the truck!

This Convertible Bench is designed for versatility and style. Each section has two positions allowing for numerous configurations. It's a bench, a 2-seat bench, a table, a love seat, and even a chair with an end table, all in one piece of furniture! I can't claim credit for this idea as it was inspired by some European designs I've seen online. This is just my interpretation. Search for "coffee bench" if you want to see where I got the idea from, though I have no way of knowing if that's the true original design. Doing more research I came across a Better Homes & Gardens plan that was basically a small shop interpretation of the coffee bench and I used that as the starting point for my version. After all, there are only so many ways to build something like this if you don't have access to CNC and you can't make the entire frame out of metal. So if you know who the true original maker of the "coffee bench" is, please let me know so I can give proper credit.

While the project is simple, I have to warn you that cutting the parts and flush-trimming them to shape will eat up a lot of hours. So invite a few friends over to help out and things should go a lot faster.
