For our 8’ by 8’ garden shed (of which I am only responsible for 40 percent) I wanted a simple bench to place under the large eave. I used leftover 4×4’s cut to 18” and to fasten three of them together I used no fasteners: Gorilla glue and clamps. Then it was easy to use 20 stainless steel screws to attach the 1×2 cedar strips for the top of the bench. The large eave harkens to the Japanese Engawa and we have many Japanese elements in our garden. It’s a great place to sit with an adult beverage and watch the rain nourish the vegetable garden to its side.
