Builders Showcase // Crate and Barrel Reef Sofas Chair and Fire Table

Builders Showcase / Crate and Barrel Reef Sofas Chair and Fire Table

I modified the Design Confidential's plans to accomodate larger cushions and made a fire table to match. The plans are easy to follow and the Kreg jig made assembly a cinch.

Originally, I planned to use readily available Sunbrella cushions from Lowe's that were 25" square and around $90 for the sofas and chair. Unfortunately, they were back ordered so I found a guy on Etsy who custom manufactures cushions near me and only cost a bit more. Overall the dimensions of the sofas are 82" wide and 32" deep and 28" tall. I made the arms a bit taller as I am 6'5" and wanted the back cushions to have a little more support. The fire table is 50" by 30" with a 30" by 10" fire pan and burner inside. ... Read More

Stupid good - and for you folks who like to play with the big boy tools, this is definitely worth sharing.
