Make a 1:18th scale Bench

Materials:

  • skinny sticks (popsicle sticks)
  • hot melt glue
  • cutting tool (I use wire cutters, then dremel sand edges when done)

 

STEP 1: Cut sticks to sizes in reference pic.

STEP 2: Glue the 1/2″ pieces across 2 of the sticks(back rest), and the 3/4″ on the 3 sticks (seat) like in picture, center them, do not allow either side to be at the edge.

STEP 3:  Now take 2 of the 4″ sticks and glue them across the back and front of the 3 sticks(seat) we just glued together.  On the same side we glue the crossbars (this is why we did not put at the edge).
Once dry we will add the 1 inch pieces(legs) to the front, place legs and glue on the inside.

STEP 4: Now add the 2″ pieces (legs) to the back (make sure only 1 inch goes towards ground), now glue the 2 piece stick(seat back) onto the legs sticking out the top of the back.
The last 2 pieces are crossbars to connect the legs. I know it sounds confusing but here are 2 more reference pictures. I apologize, I missed taking a picture when I added the legs.

This last picture is to show you variations, as long as the legs are 1 inch from seat to floor, other lengths can be adjusted.

We’d like to thank Meddatron for sharing this quick and easy build, and let’s not forget his many other contributions to The Fighting 1:18th.
