I built this for a friend. She liked the Adirondack chairs I built for myself (from a Wood magazine plan) and wanted a bench with a table of the same design. (They’ve been married awhile, she preferred the table separate them. LOL) I used the chair plan for the angle of the back and the curve of the seat slats, but was on my own from there. I originally had a set of center legs for support, but that was a bad idea unless you are on a perfectly flat surface. I bumped the frame work from cedar 1×4’s to cedar 2×4’s and eliminated the center legs. It is extremely sturdy and everyone was happy. I used all cedar lumber and stainless steel fasteners. A coat of Spar gloss and off to the patio for hours of relaxation.
thanks for looking,
