a customer commissioned me to build a copy of a futon design that was no longer being made so after many measurements and a few pieces being redone i have a working copy of the original. unlike the original however my design has 4 settings instead of just 2 and I added a midbeam in to make it stronger. Just like my other projects this is made from 1×4 pine and 2×4s which were planed down and sanded smooth with 2 layers of wipe on poly on them

I think that is pretty cool. You got me thinking about making one about 26-30 inches wide.

i was thinking of that too actually. though unfortunately i dont have all the measurements from the original since i did a lot of it by eye so i will have to tinker with this design over the summer. I definitely plan on making some of these for my patio. except narrower obviously
