I also finished all of my outside projects with the exception of the garden bench. It's replacing an old one, so I didn't feel pressured to get it made this past weekend. Maybe I'll make it this weekend and turn it into a tutorial. I'll also post pictures later of my outside, once I add a few more flowers.
It's lightly raining on and off today, so I'm hoping to get stuff done inside. I have a couple of rooms that need "tweaked" and then I'll post more pictures of my home.
Today I want to share with you a tutorial on making a bench. These are so easy to make that I have 7 of them in my house and 2 outside! I'm posting pictures of the directions so that you can click on them and print them out.
I've made most of mine with a leg height of 15", but you can cut them shorter if you wish. If you want to make a little table top bench, use a 1x2 for the side and shorten the legs.
In these pictures, the top bench is made with a 1x8 for the seat and measures 25" long, the middle bench is made with 1x10 and is 31"long and the bottom bench is made with a 1x12 and is 38" long.
If you make any of my tutorials, please send me a picture by clicking on "view my complete profile" for my email address (I don't know how to add it to my sidebar yet!). I'd love to see what you've made and post it on my blog!
