To go along with our cooler table, I also did made this large seating area. I started with building a half wall to support the bench. The wall is 12 feet wide by 14 feet long and each end section is 6 feet. Taking away the corner table, the entire available seating area is around 30 feet. We haven’t filled every spot yet, but I’m guessing that it could hold around 12-15 people.
There is a small (2’x2’) corner table top that also serves as a cover for a small storage area. The bench itself is all cedar that was finished in the same manner as the table. The boards were plained and then sanded down a lot and then given around 5 coats of spar urethane. It has a nice high gloss shine and it really brings out the natural beauty and color of the cedar.
