Simple yet strong and surprisingly comfortable, I build this bench in an afternoon using only one 2x10 and one 2x6 board. Originally designed by famed an American author, philosopher, scientist, ecologist, forester, conservationist, and environmentalist Aldo Leopold (1887-1948)

  • Do you have some measurements you could share and what degree of angle did you use on the legs. Thanks for your time.

  • sure, tho you can easily find plans for the original bench and some plans on modified benches. the seat is 48" long. the legs are cut at a 60 degree angle.
