This is was super easy outdoor bench I did for a friend. I used a bunch of 2X4 stock from the box store – I didn’t want to spend a lot on materials at all. It was quick and easy. Lots of wood glue and some 3 inch outdoor screws make this thing as solid as a tank. I painted it white and tried my hand at distressing. It went okay – not completely happy with how it looks, but my friend seemed to love it. Finished with a few coats of Spar Varnish from Lowes.
Again, as a complete beginner I am trying to get my feet wet with cutting stock to size, basic joints and simple finishing techniques. Overall, I’m glad I made it because it is being put to good use.
Thanks for looking.
