2x4 Sofa DIY

This is a very simple project, with just a few angle cuts. I recommend using a Chop-saw to cut the lumber to length, but if you don't have one, a circular saw or even a Jigsaw would work. I used webbing under the cushions that form the seat, but you could use plywood instead. If you do use plywood you can ignore the 1x2s that I used, as they are completely unnecessary when using a plywood base. Start by cutting everything to size, if you are making a sofa that is less than eight feet wide adjust the lengths of the boards accordingly. The first set of three cuts are the front and back cross members, those would be the only lengths to change to switch up the width of the sofa.

Adding a second closet door

     My bedroom has only one closet, which admittedly is rather normal, but I want to turn that closet into a sound booth so I can do voice talent. Turning the closet into a sound booth means that I need to find another place to put my clothes and stuff.
