I built this garden bench based on a video from Steve in Marin’s Woodworking for mere mortals. The original called for 4 2×4’s and 6 1×6’s. I was able to salvage a bunch of 2×4’s from some old shelving that I got for free so I used all 2×4’s. After cutting all the pieces, I rounded all the long edges with my router and a 1/4 roundover bit, then assembled, sanded and painted. The paint was a leftover and isn’t the color I thought but, there ya go. I am happy with it and it’ll look good in our garden.

:) Thanks. I think there was a base coat that I missed to get the color I wanted which was more of a brick red but, oh well. I already had the paint and I wasn’t going to use it for much else, so why not?
