Garden bench

Size 2m x 0,5m x 0,5m

Time: 3 days

Net cost: $15

Step 1: Step 1: Project

We want to make four identical benches and place them around a campfire.

We make the project: the radius to the bench must be so that we can put four benches close to each other and it will be a semi-circle around the fire.

Our sizes:

1. distance to the fire - 2 meters

2. the far edge of the bench - 2 meters

3. proximal edge of the bench - 1,5 meters

4. the width of the bench - 0,5 meters

5. the height of the bench - 0,5 meters

Step 2: Step 2: Measure Out, Saw Off, Process the Edges With a File

Sizes:

34 seat boards: 2cm x 5 cm x 50 cm

6 legs: 5 cm x 7 cm x 50 cm

2 connecting boards for seat (far edge): 4 cm x 4 cm x 100 cm

2 connecting boards for seat (a proximal edge): 4 cm x 4 cm x 80 cm

3 connecting boards from far edge to a proximal edge: 4 cm x 4 cm x 40 cm

Step 3: Step 3: Painting

Next day we paint our boards.

Step 4: Step 4: Frame for the Bench

Next day after painting we start the frame for the bench.

Legs connects with metal corners.

Step 5: Step 5: the Seat

The rays of our seat should be lined semicircle.

We lay out it easily with the rope tied to a stick.

Our rays we connect from the inside of the frame.

To turn over the bench and do not break the rays, we use paper scotch

Step 6: Step 6: Final Stage

To finalise our bench we connect side boards.

Step 7: Step 7: Invite Friends

When we finished our garden bench many friends came to see it.

Next parts of bench and fireplace are coming soon!

    I really like the looks of this bench. I have a few questions though. Could someone breakdown the measurements in inches? If not I guess I could do a little work and look online to convert. I saw where it said to use metal brackets to make the sets of legs. I didn't see how you connect the three sets of legs together. Someone else asked but I didn't see a reply what did you use to put seat boards on?

    What did you use to connect the seat boards and make them stay onto the frame?

    Nicely done sir! Quick question. What stain did you use for the bottom pieces? I really love the faux metal look it gives from a distance!
