Attach Top Trim
Measure the top edge of the sofa back — including the outside edges of the side pieces — to determine the length of the top trim piece. Mark a 1x6 cedar plank with a pencil, then cut to size with a circular saw (Image 1). Using a nail gun, attach the top trim piece with finish nails into the solid points on the back pallet piece, ensuring the front and side edges of the trim are flush with the inside edges of the back and side pallets (Image 2).
Attach Arm Pallet Fascia
Measure the vertical fascia for each of the two side pallets that will be the seat's arms. Use a pencil to mark 1x6 cedar planks with these measurements, and cut to size with a circular saw (Image 1). Align front trim piece with the top and inner seating edges of the side pallet, and use finish nails and a nail gun to attach (Image 2).
Attach Top Side Trim Pieces
Measure along the top of each side pallet from the front edge of the back top trim piece to the face of the arm pallet fascia to determine the length of the side pallet top trim pieces. Use a pencil to mark and cut 1x6 cedar plank with this measurement, and cut with a circular saw. Attach top side trim pieces to the top edges of the side pallets with finish nails and a nail gun. Tip: Make sure all corners and edges are flush before nailing.
