I orignally built these benches for my porch. Popularity cought on and now Im batching them out. I work maintenance at an apartment complex so naturally we have quite a few on the property. They are simple 2×4 construction, glued, and screwed with outdoor power pro screws. Each bench is 4 ft long, all angles are 15 degrees to give a comfortable back position, and can be made out of 6 8’ boards and 1 10’ board. The design is universal of course. I have made them from 2’ to 6’ long.
Bottom leg style-24”
Top leg style-20”
Seat and back slats-48”
All angles 15 or 90
When assembling the legs use a scrap 2×4 as a spacer between the top and bottom leg styles. Its just a matter of eyeballing everything on edge.
