These 2 benches are similar to other benches I have built in the past and posted here. Made of Pine, love the pine.
Used Pocket holes throughout. Kreg makes a great pocket hole tool! All that I am lacking is the finish which I will get done this weekend.
Thanks for looking.!!

Love those back slats. Did you make them with a dado blade or on a router table? I really like the whole look of this project.

Thanks everyone for the comments…
SCOTSMAN, thank you, I used #2 pine from HD, have to go thru a lot of stock to find the PERFECT piece…
BRADFORD, thank you, I used a router to cut the back slats, took a while but worth the look.
I really recommend using the Kreg jig, eliminates alot of drying / clamping time….
