Make a DIY Euro Pallet Chair / Love Seat / Sofa

Variations of this design sit in innovation centres, reception areas and on many patios and sun decks.  The original prototype still has pride of place on my decking at home!  Despite its robust construction, lockable casters make it easy to move around and combining with coffee sack cushions gives it a truly rustic feel.
