I recently built a park bench out of 8 – 8 foot 2×4’s. The seat is reclined at 5° relative to the floor and the back is reclined at 12.5° relative to the seat. The front leg is cut at 5° on the bottom and 90° on the top. The rear leg is cut at 22.5° on the bottom and 27.5° on the top. It is is 48” wide, 25 1/2” deep, and 33 1/2” tall.
I had to make a couple of versions until I got the design that I wanted but it is very, very comfortable.
You can view a video of this build on my YouTube page at:
I also made a sketchup and .PDF file of this bench and it can be downloaded for free on my website:
