Im looking to build a lounger/bench like this video.
But without the seperate back piece (all one length flat bench). My novice brain cant work out what I’ll need so I can walk into bunnings with a list and say cut me this.
I have never built anything not kit set before but confident I could do this once I have the right pieces therefore looking for some help to get my list of wood and measurements to take in.

Welcome to the community! We are thrilled that you have asked the community this great question.
Looking forward to seeing photos of your journey and the final product.
The answer is always the same.
You have chosen to do a project and you will be asked the same question do you have a drawing / plan ie length, width and height. from there you can then select the timber sizes you want. The back rest is the same process and as you progress making the back rest is a bit more work how will i hinge the back rest and the back rest support take a bit of time, BUT you need to do some home work first drawing of each stage brake it down. The internet is full of suggestions and the lounge you are looking at is a common design
The next question you will be asked do you have tooling to do the project?
here is a web site the may give you an idea where to go
It's great that you've received sound advice from @r23on. Since you've decided to simplify the project your cut list will actually become shorter. I've tried to find the closest equivalent timber size for your project. You can still follow the video tutorial but you can skip the lounge backrest part.
Here is the timber list.
Because the timber you're using is 2mm wider, please adjust the gap between the timber seat accordingly. Please note that this timber needs to be painted with a minimum of two coats. I suggest painting the timber before assembly. I recommend using Zenith 10G x 65mm Tufcote® Countersunk Rib Head Treated Pine Screws to hold the timber together. I've made a basic plan for you to have a look at. Please tell me what you think.

Thanks so much Eric! That’s incredibly helpful. I appreciate you taking the time a
