This classic cedar bench has clean lines and simple elegance. It’s made from materials easily obtained at most larger building supply stores or lumber yards. The plans are flexible enough to make different length benches to suit your needs by simply substituting longer lumber for the tops and sides. The bench is durable, strong and sturdy, yet light enough to be easily picked up and moved. It requires only a couple of specialized woodworking tools to build and can be completed in a day or two. Since it’s cedar and made for outdoor use, it can left unfinished or finished with waterproof deck stain or outdoor urethane.
