How to Make a Garden Bench

May 20, 2014

Description:

I was looking to make a garden bench for my mom this week, but I couldn’t find any reasonable designs online. Then I ran across Steve Ramsey’s garden bench video and his design was exactly what I was looking for. Since there was no reason to redesign a new bench, so I just made his. This bench was pretty cheap to make and I think it came out really nice. I left a link to Steve’s video below as well as a shopping/cut list if you would like to make your own!

Shopping List:

4- 2×4’s

6- 1×3’s

1- Bottle of Wood Glue (Titebond II)

1- Can of Stain/Clear Coat

1- Pocket Hole Jig (+Pocket Hole Screws)

Cut List:

4- 2×4’s at 13″ Long (Arm Rests and Side Rails)

3- 2×4’s at 17″ Long (Slat Supports)

2- 2×4’s at 45″ Long (Front and Back Rails)

2- 2×4’s at 24″ Long (Front Legs)

2- 2×4’s at 34″ Long (Back Legs)
