P had this long urge to build furniture and bought the necessary materials from Lowe’s and built an amazing ‘garden bench’ in just 4 hours!! Man, I am impressed! 🙂 Bench weighs 200 pounds.
2×4 – 8 qty
2×6 – 1 qty
Outdoor decking screws.
1) Draw a sketch of the bench with the measurements, that you plan to build. Google images come a long way!
2) Buy the necessary materials from Lowe’s or Home Depot. They even cut the wood to the dimensions that you need. You can even buy a saw to cut it on your own.
3) Build your desire bench!

After it was built, I tried my hand at sawing, painting and staining it!! 😉
