No yard is complete without this easy to build, rustic bench. Step-by-step, Cherished Bliss shows you how simple it is to create this beautiful accent piece.
On all 8 of your 4x4’s @ 14 1/2” make two pocket holes at the top with your Kreg Jig HD. Then, with 6 of the 4x4’s, make 3 pocket holes spaced evenly along the horizontal sides. Join (4) 4x4’s to make one leg with 2 1/2” Kreg Jig HD screws and exterior wood glue. Repeat for second leg.
On 3 of your 4x4’s @ 36” Make 3 pocket holes along the horizontal edge spaced evenly. Join all 4 pieces together with pocket hole screws and exterior wood glue.
Measure in 6” from the edge and line up your legs. Attach to the bottom side of your bench top using pocket hole screws and exterior wood glue.
Fill all pocket holes with either wood plugs or wood filler (let dry) and sand entire bench working your way up to 220 grit sandpaper. Round the edges on your final sanding if desired to avoid sharp edges.
