I love sitting outside now with this lovely set!
Step 1: Table Frame
make the frame from 1x3 boards
Step 2: Table Top
add 1x2 boards as the top
Step 3: Cut Your Bench Boards
smaller length so that they fit under the table
Step 4: Screw
Make sure you use screws that are able to be used outdoors. The bench is identical to the table just smaller and it has two boards for support on each long edge.
Step 5: STAIN
Use a stain that has a protection in it as well. This stain I got as a mistinted stain at lowes for $9 for the whole gallon. I still have 3/4 of the gallon left after staining 2 benches and the full table.
NOTE: Staining before putting the wood together might be easier :)
