This step by step woodworking project is about triple chair bench with table plans. This article features detailed instructions for building a sturdy triple chair with table for your backyard. The best part of this project is that you can build the wooden bench with table in less than a weekend. I have designed the plans to keep the expenditures under control and to involve the least amount of work possible. It is an ideal project for a deck or a backyard patio.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the bench won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

How to build a triple chair with table

Building the seat frame

Building the seat frame

The first step of the project is to build the seat frame for the double chair bench. Use 2×4 lumber for the components, making sure you cut them at the right dimensions. Cut one end of the short components at 75 degrees (make 15 degree cuts). Drill pocket holes at both ends of the short components and secure them to the long components using 2 1/2″ screws. Add glue to the joints and make sure the corners are square. Leave no gaps between the components.

Building the legs

Next, you need to build the legs for the double chair bench with table. Cut both ends of the back leg at 75 degrees (15 degree cuts). Smooth the edges with sandpaper.

Back Legs

Back Legs

You can see in the diagram more information about cutting the back legs. As I have already said, cut both ends at 75 degree, which means you need to make 15 degree cuts. Use the information from the diagram to build the back legs properly. The easiest way to get accurate angle cuts is to use a miter saw. Smooth the cut edges with sandpaper.

Attaching the armrest support

Continue the project by attaching the top support to the side legs. Cut one end of the 2×4 support at 75 degrees. Attach the support to the top of the legs, making sure the edges are perfectly aligned. Drill pilot holes and secure the support to the legs using 2 1/2″ screws. Pre-drilling prevents the wood from splitting.

Use a carpentry square to make sure the corners are 90 degrees. In addition, you an set the legs against a straight line, so you make sure they are aligned properly, before attaching the horizontal supports.

Fitting the side legs to the frame

After assembling the sides of the bench, you need to attach it to the seat frame, as shown in the diagram. Make sure the corners are square. Plumb the sides with a spirit level and check if the seat is perfectly horizontal. Insert 2 1/2″ screws through the frame into the legs.

Backrests

Build the backrest supports out of 2×4 lumber. Round the top corner of the supports using a jigsaw. Smooth the edges with sandpaper and remove the residues with a damp cloth.

Attach the supports to the seat frame, as shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes through the supports and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the seat frame. Leave no gaps between the components.

Back middle legs

Fit 2×4 legs to the middle of the bench. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock them into place tightly. Make sure the corners are square and leave no gaps between the components.

Table and front legs

Seat slats

Seat slats

Build the seat slats out of 1×4 lumber. Cut the components at the right dimensions and secure them to the frame using 1 1/4″ screws. Place the seat slats equally-spaced, if you want to get a professional result. Place a piece of 1/2″ plywood between the slats to get consistent gaps.

Backrest slats

Next, attach the 1×4 slats to the backrests of the chairs. Place the slats equally-spaced and lock them to the supports using 1 1/4″ screws. Smooth the edges with sandpaper. Align the edges before inserting the screws.

Front table supports

Next, you need to attach the 2×4 supports for the tabletop to the front of the bench. Align the edges with attention, drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws.

Attach the 2×4 supports to the back of the bench. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the supports and insert 2 1/2″ screws.

Tabletop slats

Tabletop slats

Attach the 1×6 slats to the table frames. Align the edges with attention and fit a piece of 1/4″ plywood between the slats so you can create even gaps.

Fitting the armrests

Fitting the armrests

Build the armrests out of 1×4 lumber. Round one end of the components and smooth the edges with 120 grit sandpaper. Use 1 1/4″ screws to secure the armrests into place. Fill the holes with wood putty.

Top Tip: If you want to enhance the look of the project and to protect the wooden bench from decay, we recommend you to cover the components with paint or stain.
