This DIY sofa can be made with basic power tools in less than 5 hours. Modern outdoor sofas can be quite expensive and this project can provide a more affordable alternative. I made this couch out of 4x8s, 2x8s, and some outdoor sofa cushions that I bought from IKEA. It is a sturdy DIY sofa made from solid wood. I used a grey Minwax wood stain to finish it.
