I started this project because I needed to something to do and I didn’t have a tone of money and I had a lot of pressure treated and cedar lying around so I found this design online and decided it would be a great addition to the back yard especially where I do all my summertime grilling..

Materials Needed:
(6) 2×4x8’ Pressure Treated lumber ( I used this for the frame)
(5) 1×4x8’ Cedar (I used this for the visible parts of the bench such as the seat slats, back slats, table slats and arm rests.
(1) 1×6x8’ Cedar (this is for the table slats

It basically goes together with a combination of 2.5’” & 1 1/4” screws and exterior wood glue.

All these pictures are before I apply the finish and I think I’m gonna slap some Spar Urethane on it just to give it that extra protection from all the elements as it will be outside all year long.

Having the table in the middle doubles for an arm rest for each side. Nice.

Very nice looking outdoor bench! Looks very comfortable, and I’m sure you’ll get a lot of enjoyment from it!

Hi Ed,
Very nice rendition of the two seater bench with the console. Great work!

I also found this to be the ‘bees knees’ and made my own….but like just about anything else I make, I customized it to my liking and physical size.

Made the frame from the 2x materials like the instructions but I wanted a full bench and yet I really liked the console too…..so I made a removable console so I have both a full bench (for napping) and two over-sized seats with a console. Used both cherry and walnut boards for the bench and trim, and then a combo of the woods for the console. Having custom cushions being made and a couple other unique ‘surprises’.....I’ll post it when it is complete.

This makes a lot of sense! Everyone need someplace to put there drink! Nice work Ed!

Is this made of teak wood, as it seems similar type of materials to the outdoor occasional table that I bought with this exact design http://www.javateakoutdoorfurniture.com/products/occasional-tables/.

Hi Dave no it’s not teak it’s cedar and pressure treated lumber

I’m just wondering should I plug the countersunk holes and sand flush it might be a nice finishing detail if use a contrasting wood
