Search local stores or warehouses for discarded shipping pallets. You need two pallets: one for structural support and one for the seat top, sides and back. The seating structure and back pallets should be the same length.
Cut Structural Pieces
Use measuring tape and a pencil to mark the sofa back, seat structure and top pallets to 24x72 inches (Image 1). Cut with a circular saw (Image 2).
Attach Top and Bottom Pallets
Lay structural pallet on the ground, and stack the seat pallet on top so edges and corners are aligned (Image 1). Attach the two pallets by drilling through the top pallet into a solid point on the bottom pallet with 2-inch deck screws (Image 2). Drill 4 points along the front and back edges.
