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.

Looks good and well made. I’m sure it will last long outdoors. Great job!
