This bench is made with cedar boards for the seat and cedar 4×4s for the legs. I designed this bench a couple of years ago, as it was meant to match a raised flower bed I had also built. I decided to add a white stripe down the middle and incorporate the posts and the hardware as part of the design.
The construction is very simple with screws, lag bolts and nails. It’s made primarily as an outdoor piece of furniture, however I think it would be great in a foyer or why not a bathroom too.
The bench is extremely sturdy and features lots of internal support. I decided to finish it with a spar urethane solution to keep the color of the cedar. I really like the clean, modern look it has, and I know from experience that this bench holds up very well over time.
