Yes! I used plans from Ana-White for the outdoor couch. The plans and how to video are actually on Ryobi's website. You can also find them at Ana-white.com. I built the outdoor couch and the one arm sectional piece. I originally planned to only make those two pieces but ended up making an extra seat to maximize the space after I realized it was cutting off my patio too much. You can see the extra piece between the two couches. I would recommend sanding and staining before you build. It was kind a pain to sand and stain every nook and cranny after it was built.
I know what you mean. I have a build list a mile long because even though it's cheaper to build, I have a budget to stick to. I've slowly been building my tools the past couple of years. I also have a list of tools I want that's a mile long! Ha For my first build all I had was a drill! I borrowed my neighbors Kreg jig.
