DIY Bench with Two Planters





From Scott,

Project was pretty easy, but time consuming with all the smaller cuts and making sure they are all perfectly square.  Turned out very nice though.  ***Note that the cut list says the bench boards are 42″, but they should really be ~52.5″. Total cost was about $160 using cedar tone treated pine, and took approximately 7-8 hours in total  Also the tops of the planters made from 1×6 boards need to be ripped down to 4.5″ wide, in case you don’t have a table saw and need HD to rip it for you.



From Plans:

Difficulty Level: intermediate

Time Required: 1 day

Total Cost: 160 $
