DIY 2×4 Outdoor Bench
2×4 treated lumber per the plans were used and it’s hard to calculate the total time as I worked on it over the course of several weeks when there were free moments. I’d say 6-8 hrs for construction and another few hours for sanding and staining. A fun and relatively easy project. Thanks for the plan.
Nice job on the bench!! I was wondering about the top support on the back. Is that still a 2×4 with curved ends, or a 2×6?
That’s a 2×6.
Thanks for the reply’s Julian. I love the look of this. I think I might use a 2×6 for the arms as well, to give them a wider top, tapering the ends to fit to the 2×4.
have a great day!!
Yes, you should adjust the design to suit your tastes. Good luck and let me know how it comes out!
