I really like the look. Simple and beautiful. How many 2×4s did that take?

Nice bench I was looking at making one of these.

One thing I wondered about is how the straightness of the 2×4s affects the bench. I know when I buy 2×4s they tend to often be warped. I saw for making this bench they do rip off the rounded edges so that might help.

I found the best of what they had & ripped them to get rid of the round corners.
