Basic Outdoor Bench
Basic Outdoor Bench
My basic, functional, home-crafted "KISS" benches for outdoor use. 100% designed and constructed in Minnesota, USA. I use 1x4 lumber. I find that outdoor furniture constructed using 2x4 material is durable but can look clunky, be unnecessarily heavy, and be unnecessarily costly. Likewise I have found that fancy, ornate outdoor furniture is more expensive, takes a lot of time to design and construct, and the result is a fragile piece of furniture that simply does not hold up well to the elements. Are you tired of paying a lot of money for fancy outdoor furniture that doesn't hold up? Fed up with buying the cheap big-box junk that falls apart after one season if not sooner? Build a couple of these benches for yourself and you will not regret it - they are both inexpensive and durable, and have a simple, pleasant appearance. There can be beauty in simplicity. These benches are the result of my change in thinking. One weekend a decade or so ago my older brother was helping me construct one of my beautiful but overly complicated pieces of outdoor furniture. After some assembly frustrations he eloquently suggested that I "Keep It Simple, Stupid" (you gotta love older brothers!) and he helped me design and construct the prototype. We had a prototype bench built in about 4 hours. I haven't built complicated stuff since. It was also pretty easy to come up with the name for these benches. :-) The original design used treated 4x4 material for the legs. While extremely durable, I did not care for the appearance and they made the benches much heavier and harder to carry. These photos show my second and final design for this model. Designed and constructed to be long-lasting, and lightweight yet durable. I weigh 200 lbs. and I can jump on these benches without damaging them. Their light weight makes them ideal for use in the garden - they can be easily moved to whatever part of the garden you are working on and make a handy place for your beverage, tools, seeds, starter plants, sprinkling cans, harvest boxes and baskets, etc. - saves on the back strain and the bending. (Are you getting weary of constantly having to set your hoe on the ground when you need to do something else, then bending over to pick it up again? Lean it against the bench instead!) Benches can also be used as a comfortable work center right in the garden for working on harvested produce (cleaning, topping, grading, sorting, etc.). Naturally their best use is or for parking yourself when taking a break from your gardening chores and for people to sit and view your garden. These benches can easily be lifted and moved around by one person. Simply tip on one side, grab and lift by the center of the side rail and carry. These benches are remarkably well-balanced when using this method to carry them. When left in an unfinished state, these benches will weather to a nice natural gray. Sealing them with a clear seal is not absolutely necessary but doing so will retain their "new" appearance longer (if that is desired) and extend the quality appearance of the bench. Placing benches in sheltered storage during the off-season will extend the quality appearance as well. I expect these benches to last at least 15 years without maintenance. My first benches were constructed 12 years ago and are still holding up well. I have 20 of these benches in gardens, around the yard, and along my nature paths. They are great when having an outdoor summer party - I just collect them and group them around the fire pit, the croquet court, the horseshoe pit, etc. Beats having lawn chairs everywhere because these benches can seat three adults if need be. Modern lawn chairs also have small feet that can press into the ground, possibly causing the user to fall over. These benches are stable and do not damage the lawn. Every year I do a production run of 25 benches that I sell or give away as gifts. Materials: Green treated 1x4 pine. Cedar lumber is beautiful and lightweight thus can also be used, but it is more expensive and needs to be planed prior to using. Dimensions: 48 inches long by 19 1/2 inches wide by 19 1/2 inches high. Weight: 20 lbs. dry. Details: All joints and seams glued with exterior grade glue and fastened with countersunk exterior grade deck screws, appearance surfaces sanded and sliver-free. Finish: None. Maintenance: Maintenance-free unless one chooses to seal the bench - then the bench should be resealed at least every third year or sooner at owner's discretion. Capacity: Specifically designed to comfortably accommodate two adults and one child. Trade Value/Barter Value/Price: These benches sell for $75 USD at local summer markets and craft fairs. Do-It-Yourself Notes: 1.) 4-8 hours estimated project time depending on woodworking experience and equipment available.

I took the guard off my saw table, sunk the blade, laid a large sheet of galvanized sheet metal across it (I forget why I have it), pushed the fence to the far right of the table for use in squaring things up, figured out how I was going to do the large amount of gluing, did that, pushed all the pieces together - with a 2x4 on edge between the fence and the bottom 2x4 seen here to set up that mating space, and drove home all 12 of the 2.5" outdoor treated Kreg pocket screws. Then I went around with my finger 'caulking' the glue spill out back into the tiny gap around the panels, and into the corners, finally wiping away all the excess with a wet rag. This wall is done!
