|Thread: How to modify this design - outdoor sofa|
New to the forum and woodworking in general!
I'm looking to create an outdoor sectional sofa, and came across this plan: **LINK**
It looks pretty easy for a beginner, however I do have some concerns over just how strong some of the joints are. From trying to do my own research I understand that screwing into the end face is a big no no, and that seems to happen a lot in this project.
It appears that pocket joints may be a suitable alternative, but again I've read they aren't the strongest. I've seen M&T joints and adding in hardware also suggested...
Is anyone able to offer up any advice as to how to adapt the design to make it more robust?
Thank you all in advance and looking forward to learning more!
