Plywood Swing Out Seat

Plywood Swing Out Seat

The main point of this project was to challenge myself and work out if it was possible to make a plywood swing out seat without any metalworking. At the outset I wasn't over confident but felt it was possible, good quality plywood is strong. It's worked out well but without testing it over time I couldn't be super confident it will hold up indefinitely. There really is a lot of stress, especially on the top hinge. Also I'm comparing it to the steel seat I built a couple of weeks ago and that thing is rock solid.

I really liked how the frame came out but I struggled to find a seat design I liked that complimented it. I played around with a few ideas before settling on the same style seat as my other swing out seat. I reckon it looks fine but not sure that I nailed it.

As always I'm happy to answer any questions.
