    My twins and I took advantage of some of your pics and made big sturdy bench for our deck.
    Its seating area is 60inches wide and the backrest is a plus.
    Treated lumber is readily available here in Puerto Rico and cost almost the same as plain lumber.
    Here is a pic of it before the sealer applied.

    Hi
    I built a bbq table off the plans from your site a while ago, and decided our outdoor area needed some sort of casual seating, so I had another look for seating and came across this bench seat.
    The plans were really easy to understand, and I even modified the seat by also changing the back to a 15 degree angle and I made the legs longer to allow for some armrests by repositioned the legs at the end of the seat slats to allow for them.
    I am thinking of making single seaters the same to have as a set and having them all stained the same colour.
    Attached are some photos for you to look at.
    Thanks

    Thanks for the plans of the garden bench. The photos and ideas from others were also helpful.
    I too went with the 15 degree back rest angle.
    I also added a top 2×4 which makes a good arm rest and a level spot for a cup of coffee.
    Note that you have to cut the top at the same angle so it will be horizontal.
    I didn’t do a great job with the stain/varnish but since both are going in the woods it adds to the “rustic” look! As illustrated, if you make two benches, you could put them back-to-back if there was a need for such an arrangement.
    Thanks again. S Norwood

    Hi Buildeasy.
    I built two of the garden seats and donated them to a school (in South Africa). The benches will outside in the playground.

    First I marked out the sizes of the pieces and cut them, taking extra care with the angled parts. Then I painted everything with wood primer and left it for a week, after which they were painted again with a good quality paint and left for another few days. Then the benches were assembled and painted a second time. Treated timber was used throughout and considering that the benches have had three coats of paint, they should last for many years.
    I consider myself to be a “battler”, not good with my hands, and yet I managed to put together quite a stunning pair of benches. It was fun !

    My next project is going to be the BBQ picnic table.

    I built three of these benches last year to go around our fire pit and they were a big hit with everyone. I’ve since built quite a few more for admirers of the seats.
    I highly recommend, as others have as well, to make the seat back 15 degrees to give a slightly more comfortable position.
    Thanks!

    Hi. I build the garden seat. Instead of the seat slats, i used two Snowboards. Instead of 100×50 timber, i used 70×30 and i changed the back support angle to 15. For more stability with the elastic snowboards, i add two more spreaders. Greets from Switzerland.

    Hi, Your plans are excellent. I built one bench last year for my fire pit and am planning on building another soon. I also modified the for the bench back to 15 degrees. It’s quite comfortable.
    Since I’m an almost 50 year old female – I’d like to give the female prospective on building this bench. It was easy, and rewarding to build and quite a conversational piece – everyone is so impressed. My son’s friend suggested I build a smore’s table to match. I used the same basic principles as your bench plans and I now also have a great table.
    Thanks you for sharing. “Sitting” pretty in Oceanport, NJ.

    Free Pallet Chair Plans Layouts Backgroundhow to Free Pallet Chair Plans Layouts Background for Hi. I used your site plans to make a garden seat for my 9-year old daughter, who helped.
    The plans worked great, and I am attaching a picture.
    I would agree with other builders comments — to slant the backrest to 15 degrees, not 10, and to use 4 inch carriage bolts, not 4 1/2. I seem to have an overhang on both sides of over 6 inches, but it still looks swell.
    The whole thing took about 4 hours, if you include looking for tools and yelling at my kids. We plan to stain and weatherize it, and to cover the ends of the carriage bolts with rubber covers so no one scratches themselves.
    Thanks for a great site and a fun project for the novice!

    After searching the internet for the “BEST” design, this treasured FREE!, Yes, FREE! park bench design is the greatest thing. It’s plain, simple and easy to understand. My son did his Boy Scout Eagle Project and built 3 park benches for the church around the parking lot. With the help and guidance of an adult, these benches came out looking good, comfortable and are super sturdy. No nails used. They used heavy duty bolts. Then, they cemented these benches to the ground. The greatest satisfaction for him is seeing these benches are constantly used and enjoyed by many. I tell ya… this Eagle Scout is mighty proud of his project. He can go back 20 years from now and will still see these benches holding on pretty good. You can expect more Eagle projects as the boy scouts share this design. Thank you so much.
    Smile! Have a blessed day!

    Free Pallet Chair Plans Layouts Backgroundhow to Free Pallet Chair Plans Layouts Background for Hi, The Garden Seat plans are excellent, thanks for putting them up online.
    As a novice I found the instructions and diagrams very clear and easy to follow.
    I would agree with the previous comment about 15 degree angle for the seat.
    I changed the dimensions to 6 feet long, a bit taller and deeper.
    I could not get 2×4 inch boards so I used 6×1.5 inch mahogany instead and it turned out plenty strong enough.
    To give extra strength to the seat and back boards, I used 120mm screws instead of nails, sunk and plugged for a smooth finish.
    Photo attached. Thanks again, great plans.

    Hello, Last year I built your “Garden Seat”.
    I had not taken on anything this large previously, the plans were concise making the bench a quick build.
    I made only one change to the plans, increasing the angle of the backrest from 10 degrees to 15 degrees.
    I used scrap lumber,so the only costs were hardware, primer and exterior paint. The bench is rugged and will last a very long time, it also has an anti-theft mechanism built in, as it weights so much. Thank you for the plans.

    This bench was a joy to build. My buddies and myself out in the shop laughing and joking around, took about 2 hours to cut the pieces and slap it together. I did some extra detail with a routered edge and stain, with screws and plugs. Turned out great! Good times with friends, and nice simple project for anyone to try.

  24. Hector Free Pallet Chair Plans Layouts Backgroundhow to Free Pallet Chair Plans Layouts Background for says

    Hi, I built three garden benches and one planter at a total cost of under $190 using all brand new material. I live in Hawaii and as you can imagine everything is way more expensive. I’m sure someone in the continental U.S. can make them cheaper. They all came out strong and perfect. I only modified one bench by making it 8 feet long and the planter by making the supports 22 inches long instead of 14 inches to add height and be able to use it as an arm rest. Build time was a little over 2 hours for the first bench, under 2 hours for the second bench and 1 hour 20 minutes for the third bench (8 foot bench). It get’s way easier the more you do it. The planter took me about 2 hours as well. All this was before sanding and finishing. About me, I’m just an average guy with no prior skills in making furniture or carpentry skills. All I did was follow the steps. The angle of the backrest and the width of the seats are perfect. The benches are very comfortable.

    Now, I do have some tips that I stumbled upon. When I bought the material I bought 14 2x4x8s and enough bolts to make two benches. I noticed that if you follow the instructions by cutting the longer pieces first you will use exactly 7 planks of 2x4x8 no more, no less with very little leftover material. So when you go buy your material just buy 7 2x4x8s and the necessary bolts. That’s it! Total cost for the 7 boards and 10 bolts was $44.95.
    Beat that! Thanks Buildeazy!

    Here is the Garden Seat I just made from your plans. It is very sturdy. I raised the height to 50cm as its for pensioners at a day centre and they need a higher seat.
    I am donating it to them.
    I finished it with Barratine Cedar Red wood preserver (its the nicest red cedar) and with Ronseal Fern garden paint, 3 coats of each. I too used a 15 degree slant for the back, or even a bit more. I used my angle grinder to cut flush the coach bolts that protruded. I had spare wood in the roofspace which was almost 2×4 inches. I’m pretty pleased with the results.
    Another version I done of this last year was without the back support, as a quick easy bench for a neighbour. I may also shorten it and do a single chair type version.

    Hi,
    I built the bench from your plans more than a year ago and it was quite useful in our front porch. However, after a while my wife suggested that we need a companion table for the bench. so a modified the plans and came up with the table as seen in the picture. I will soon be doing another bench to complete the set, but without the back rest this time. Guest have been saying that they complement the porch quite well.
    Thanks a lot.

    Had great fun making the garden bench which goes really well with the table I made earlier.
    I used a water based Bright Oak stain which was very easy to apply using a brush to get into the nooks and crannies.
    Like others I pitched the back rest at 15deg which is very comfortable and I rounded the corners at the front just to soften the look slightly.
    If anybody needs to de stress build something out of wood, I was lost in my workshop for days.
