✖️ ozito jigsaw – ozito sander – ozito drill – circular saw – paint brush ✖️
As you all know I made a church pew for our Master bedroom ( diy blog on here) but I thought I would make a mini version for Bonnie’s room! Every little girl needs a mini church pew in their room haha! – the main reason I made this was because Bonnie absolutely loves our church pew and sits on it all the time.
Exactly like I did with our Master bedroom I set my self a challenge to make this church pew out of 1 piece of timber!
✖️ 1 piece of timber from Bunnings $33..
✖️ timber size 18 x 450 x 1800mm –
✖️I made the church pew 900 high x 250 wide x 200 depth of seat x height of the seat 350 from the floor to the top of the plank (mm)
✖️ I used my Ozito jigsaw and round sander cordless which were absolutely perfect! Both performed extremely well and are light in weight. I love the fact they are cordless and that the sand paper just sticks on! This means the sand paper doesn’t rip off while using it.
✖️ I also used a 1 litre paint tin to mark and draw the shape of the church pew.
✖️ cut one side first and trace around it for the second side.
✖️ clean up the edges using your sander.
✖️ I didn’t cut or sand the church pew to be perfect because I wanted it to have a little bit of texture!
✖️ cut the supports for the back and seat –
– seat brace is 200mm or 180mm if you don’t want to see the edge.
– back brace is 150mm
✖️ measure from the bottom up to 350mm ( to the top of the brace ) screw into the side- I used 28mm screws
✖️the distance between the bottom brace and top brace is 130mm
✖️the seat and back planks are 200mm x 500mm – I just screwed them straight into the brace ( you can countersink the screw and fill )
✖️ I used spare paint I had and gave it 1 washed textured coat to give it a weathered look.
Total cost $33…Alicia xx
