@MrsAjj - The cushion size depends on how large you decide to build your couch so measure yours to be sure. We used cushions like this from Home Depot for ours: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Hampton-Bay-Woodbury-Textured-Sand-Replacement-Outdoor-Sofa-Cushion-JY9127-S-CUSH/204378799.

@DIY_Diva - We only have a finished image for this project. The video has all the step by step instructions. I hope this helps.

Finished product looks great. A two and a half minute video is not a downloadable plan. Too bad you guys don't have a step by step like Ana has for all her other plans on her site!!

Can't get on to the ryobi site. Total mess.

step by step is some one else doing the thinking for you.
we should be able to take a picture with the size of all parts
and do great. What good is it to me if some one else does
all the work, then I've learned nothing.

Hi, Ana.
I hope you feature this design on your website with the sketchup illustrations. Those step-by-step instructions are much clearer than the text-only procedure written here.

I cannot see any pictures or how to download this project...would love the plans and instructions with photos?

You really should have the 'downloadable plans' ready and available to download before you publish the video that refers to them. What's with the illustrations now showing up with this webpage. I find the Ryobi Nation site very unsatisfactory every time I come here. I now only come here when Ana White mentions it!

I have been searching for a 2x4 sofaa long time. Imagine how disappointed I am that this is not a downloadable plan, nor do the pictures (including materials and cut list) don't show on the page and nothing I do can make them show up. Truly Disappointed.
I also can not get to the contest entry. This is a totally useless plan at this point.

Can't wait to make this.

MATERIALS USED: is a list of all the parts, a video to view over and over, and step by step instructions.
All we need now is some one to say over and over " look what I made"

I'm sure that you're getting a lot of hits from Ana-White.com to see these plans, but Ana's format with the cut list and progress pictures is so much more user friendly. I love Ana's plans because they're easy to read. I like the progress pictures in sketchup too. The quality of this plan is on par with www.wikihow.com .......

I agree with everyone else. Ana's sketchup, step by step plans on her site are much more effective and user friendly. I think you'll be getting less traffic if you use ryobi's website as a way to publish plans.

So where are the plans?
NOT a very user friendly site, Ana'os OR Ryboi. They need new a new webmaster.

Since this is an outdoor couch, do you have instructions on how to weatherproof the wood?


Weird

I can't wait until I can make this for our deck! Couches and other patio furniture is so expensive and made cheaply!
