I’ve got a hankering for trying my hand at building a Greene and Greene style garden bench. I’ve seen lots of pictures (including some nice ones by fellow Lumberjocks) but I can’t seem to find any plans. I have some skills (as the kids say), but I’m not nearly good enough to try something like this without plans. Does anyone know of any?

Bob Lang published a book of shop drawings for several pieces of G&G furniture (none of them a bench of any kind). Lest I mislead you, these are more like measured drawings, versus plans, but are quite useful.

I’m pretty sure this book has a plan.
