Before beginning, measure and cut plywood and timber to the listed dimensions and sand any rough edges. Assemble the unit with exterior PVA glue and galvanised nails.
Form the front of the base by attaching 2 of D to 16 of B, ensuring both cross pieces are centrally positioned.
Form one side panel by attaching 2 of E to 6 of B and 1 of C, as shown, ensuring each cross piece is centrally positioned. Repeat to form the second side.
Form the seat’s base by attaching the front and sides to 1 of K, as shown. For the back panel, attach 2 of D to 16 of A (fix 1 of D along the bottom edge and the second D about 330mm up from the bottom edge).
For the seat lid, attach the 2 of J and 1 of H to 1 of G. Place lid in position. Meas ure and cut a 50mm x 10mm section from each upper corner of the base front to fit the lid. Leave overnight for glue to dry.
Apply two coats of Resene Amulet to the base of the unit and two coats of Resene Green House to the seat lid, allowing two hours for each coat to dry.
