Outdoor Bench Plans

If you want to create a nice relaxation area in your garden, building a sturdy wooden bench is one of the greatest ideas on your list. There are so many advantages of such a project, that we can fill pages and pages. First of all, any person with basic tools and average woodworking experience can build this outdoor bench, as the skills required are minimum.

Therefore, if you can measure, cut boards, drill holes and insert screws, changes are you will get the job done in a professional manner. Invest in high quality lumber and smooth the cut edges before assembling them together. Pre-drill the components before inserting the galvanized screws to prevent the wood from splitting. In addition, countersink the head of the screws, to get a neat result.

As you can see in the diagram, a garden bench with a backrest is the greatest choice you have out there, as you can enjoy a good book in your backyard, feeling as you were in an exquisite park. Moreover, you can adjust the slope of the backrest to suit your needs. Use these free garden bench plans and build a wonderful addition to your property.

In order to add support to the structure, we recommend you to install braces, crossbraces and a nice stretcher to the bench. Work with attention and invest in high quality materials. Usually, a 48" wide bench is good enough to support two people, but you can make it wider easily.

Lots of outdoor furniture projects here: so make sure you take a look over the possibilities before starting the actual construction project.

There are many outdoor bench designs you can choose from, so don't forget to spend some time looking over the alternatives. Make sure the corners are square and add glue to enhance the bond of the joints.
