Our old 1970’s style brick barbie had seen better days, so Kev decided to convert it into a Frank Lloyd-Wright inspired garden seat.

Step 1: Remove all the loose material. Wear gloves for spider and cut protection!

Step 2: Cut the supporting walls off at a height of 400 to 450mm. Kev used an angle grinder with a diamond disc to “score” the walls so the upper section can be removed without destabilising the base.

Step 3: Use a lump hammer and bolster to remove the unwanted sections of brickwork.

Step 4: Sit the capping plank in a thick bed of liquid nails. There’s no need to screw or nail it down – the glue will hold it perfectly well once it’s cured. Fix a face board to it with galvanised nails and more glue. Lay the seat planks in the same way, and then fix more face boards in place on the front of the seat with Liquid Nails and fasteners. What could be simpler!

tip Kev’s Tip:
Wear a dust mask when cutting masonry with a blade – there’s lots of dust!.

Selleys Liquid Nails is available at all good hardware stores.
