Had a call a couple days ago for two of these for this weekend. They wanted them for photos. Can’t believe I haven’t posted these before. By far my best seller for outdoor stuff. Just Landscape timbers. 7 feet long with a 4 ft bench.

Thanks for looking

How many timbers does it take to build one? I love the simple, functional, nice looking design.

Slick design! Do you put any lining in the pot holders to help water proof?, or is that up to the customer?

Three ways, least favorite is to put the dirt directly in planter. Second method is to put at least a couple layers of heavy Landscape plastic in it and then fill with dirt. The bottom is 2” treated lumber with holes to drain water. Last is putting a pot in it to gold the plants.

Cut list;
Assuming you’re using 8 ft timbers,
2- 83-1/2” pieces full length on top
24- 12-1/2” pieces box sides
20- 18” pieces box sides
3- 48” pieces seat pieces
2- 15-1/2” pieces seat supports

I think assembly is fairly obvious. Everything is screwed from the bottom (basically built from top down) so no screws are exposed. Contact be if you have questions.
