How To Make Cube Seats - David Collins

Spring is almost upon us and that means spending much more time in the outdoors. As Australians we tend to spend our time both relaxing and entertaining outside our homes and when it comes to relaxing, we rarely get enough. Dave showed how fast it is to build a cube seat that can be used as an outdoor ottoman. With the help of the easy to use 18 volt One Plus System range from Ryobi you’ll have the ottoman’s made in no time, leaving you with more time to put your feet up on them. The best part about Ryobi 18 Volt One Plus power tools is that they are designed to fit the same interchangeable batteries, so that means no more wasting time and money!
