General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain.

Step 1

Build legs first, starting at inside and working outward. Once you have one built, use it as a pattern for the other legs.

Step 2

Attach stretchers with 1 1/4″ PH screws and wood glue.

Step 3

Add seat boards as shown in diagram.

Step 4

Add bottom decorative supports centered between legs. for an additional decorative touch.

For added support, you could also run cross braces from the center support to each leg – not essential for the shorter bench, but a possible consideration for the longer bench.

Finishing Instructions:

Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
