The Cut Diagram

Step 1

On the off chance that your sheets are unpleasant, you may need to sand them before gathering the seat softly.

Drill pocket holes in 1 1/2″ materials in both closures of the 34 1/2″ & 27″ boards.


Measure and stamp the focal point of the 13″ and 9″ pieces, additionally, check the focus of both closures of the 34 1/2″ and 27″ pieces. Utilizing wood glues and 2 1/2″ stash opening screws, append the focal point of the 9″ pieces to the finishes of the 34 1/2″ piece. Rehash for the focal point of the 13″ pieces and the 27″ piece.

(If you do not have any Kreg pocket hole jig, then you can toenail the fastens.)

Step 2

Measure & mark 1/2″ in from of each 13 inches pieces end. The legs will insert 1/2″ in from each 13 inches piece end.



Use the countersink bit and pre-drill its holes for screws to add the legs to the 13 inches pieces. Use either 2 1/2″ or 3 inches screws to attach the legs to the 13 inches pieces. (Notable point: Legs will not fit correctly onto the 13 inches pieces, overhang the same amount on all legs.)


"If you love woodworking projects, try this simple, affordable outdoor benches to prove your skill."

Turn the leg assembly upside down & mark 2 inches down on each leg's end. Pre-drill countersink holes in the outsides of the legs (I drilled the holes about 3 inches down from the leg's end). Attach the 9-inch pieces between the legs using 2 1/2 inches or 3 inches screws.




Step 3

Measure & mark the center line for the length & width of the 34 1/2″ piece. Mark 3/4″ on both sides of the long center line mark. Repeat same marks on the 27-inch piece.


Slide 2 of the 16 1/4″ X pieces in the middle of the top and base backings, trim the 16 1/4″ pieces if essential. Line up the closures of the X pieces with the 3/4 inch marks. The middle line stamp between them. Penetrate countersink gaps in the 34 1/2″ and 27″ pieces, connect every X part with a 2 1/2″ or 3″ screw.

Flip the seat over, slide the other 2 – 16 1/4″ X pieces in the middle of the top and base backings, trim the 16 1/4″ pieces if fundamental. Line up the closures of the X pieces with the 3/4″ marks and the middle line check between them. Penetrate countersink gaps in the 34 1/2″ and 27″ pieces, append every X part with a 2 1/2″ or 3″ screw. 


Yay, now the base is done.




Step 4

Measure over around 6″ from the 42″ board closes, pre-bore countersink openings to append the top pieces to the base.  



The top will overhang 1/2 inch from the 13-inch pieces as an afterthought and around 4 inches from the closures. Join the top sheets to the base with 2 1/2″ screws. 

The twofold X seat collected and prepared for wrap up.


I chose to go for an exceptionally bothered (chippy paint) look. In the first place I recolored the seat a dim dark colored shading. 



Once the stain dried completely, I utilized a little oil jam (Vaseline) and connected a small sum on the corners and edges where I didn't need the paint to stick. 


I utilized a white latex paint and painted the entire seat white and let the paint dry. 


  
Anyplace I put the Vaseline, the shading sort of split and didn't stick. I utilized a Corner Cat sander to trouble the paint and unpleasant it up.





I am very excited, how this bench turned out, now it is looking like comfortable places to sit at home on my front porch!

 
Now I have built an
outdoor wooden bench and its ready to use. This was my last week woodworking project for a local exhibition.
