Here is a garden style bench I threw together the other day, I didnt have any plans, just went with what I had. I took some measurements for the dimensions , like seat height and width from a few seats and chairs in the shop. The lenght I just went with something I thought would be comfy for 2 people.
It ended u p being just under 60” long, 19” seat depth, and about 20” seat height,, the back I think is about 20” from seat bottom as well. I put a sort of shelf on teh bottom, looks over built. But it sort of needs to be , this is going to be a bench that I will be putting at the pumpkin farm this fall, so I thought it needed a little heft.
I need to build a few more, maybe put a sign on them that they are also for sale ..
the wood is just some hardwood rough cut I had laying around,, some cherry, oak and I think birch.
my planer is down with a broken screw that holds the blades on, so I hand planed and sanded , but still wanted some rough saw marks, so it worked out,
I will be hopefully building a few more shortly, I may post them, hope you enjoy,, stay warm, spring has to be coming,pat
