Hello folks! This week I have a complete tutorial and free downloadable plan for my 2×4 sitting benches. This was my first post here on lumberjocks. I always get a good response from these locally and a lot of people have shown interest on my website so I figured it would be a good time to make a free plan for them. The bench can be built out of 8 8’ 2×4s. Each side table is 2 2×4s. Here is a short video tutorial for the build. If you would like to download a copy of the plans you can click the link in the YouTube description to go to my website. I hope some of you can make a couple and sell them. I have been selling this exact bench for 4 years. Have a great weekend folks!

A link to the plans is in the YouTube description.

I like the idea that you try to make them simple without making it look cheap. I could use a comfortable bench right now. :-)

I’m a little behind on my youtube subscriptions, looking forward to viewing this one. I can’t thank you enough for making sketchup a lot easier for us.

Thanks for the video. I have to try making some outdoor furniture for myself. Everytime I think about buying some plastic set… I think of your videos. Just need to invest that money into some 2×4’s instead. Video was helpful. Now I need to go get the plans and see if I have 8 2×4’s. :) (or enough scraps to get the cut list)

Got it marked as a Favorite. I need to make one! Did you use regular 2X4s or treated wood? Do you finish them with anything?

Knothead62 – You can use whatever you want. This build was with non treated wood. If you are going to have it under a roof you can get away with non treated. If you are going to have it out on the grass where water will be absorbed through the feet I would go with treated. I also use Thompsons Water Sealer with good results when I build with non treated lumber.

It looks good, well crafted and has a simple design that’s why it’s a hit. Great job and great video, thanks for sharing!
