My wife and I dug out a nice new fire pit in our backyard using rocks we already had, so now we needed a place to sit. I found plans for a simple bench online (link below) that mostly did the trick. It’s not too bad for my first project in quite a while, but I definitely rushed and have some improvements I’d make if I make another.
The angles listed in the instructions were fairly accurate although I had to do a little tweaking to get them quite right, but that may be related to me making mistakes in the cuts. The entire project took a little over two hours, but I think I could do it more quickly on a second time through, and the finished product is very sturdy.
I’ll also need to add some finish to the bench at some point, but since I haven’t decided what I want to use and don’t know what finish would best protect this, I’m considering this my ‘finished product’ for now.
