I wanted a simple but stable bench for my back yard. I built a Harriet Chair from plans I found on Ana White web site, it went together very fast and has held up so well even with my weight ( which is over 300 pounds ) I decided to modify the plans and came up with this I used 2x3 instead of 2x2. The angle cuts are the same and the height for the base is the same just made three legs, made it 4 feet long. The back was a little tricky because of the middle leg but the Kreg Jig saved the day.
So if you want a fun quick and sturdy bench for around 40 dollars wood, screws and all this in my opinion is the way to go from start to finish about 2 hours. Have fun
