Comfortable 2×4 Bench

Comfortable 2×4 Sitting Bench

I have been following Jay and he offers free 2×4 sitting bench plans (located here). It requires:

Eight 8′ 2x4s
24 2-1/2″ outdoor screws
21 2-1/2″ outdoor pocket hole screws
Outdoor wood glue
Miter saw or hand saw
Drill
Pocket hole jig

To get the rest of the plan please visit Jay’s website

After cutting all 2×4’s and drilling the pocket holes, I placed the legs on stands and started putting them together.

The pencil and Sharpie method worked great…

The finished sitting bench…

The handy helper using the shop vac…

A coat of Arborcoat Natural and it’s ready for the garden. Future bench projects may include treated lumber depending on how well this bench holds up. I just thought it would look better with a more natural coat.
