Garden Bench Project – Instructional Video

How to Build a Garden Bench

Here’s a project that has a few challenges, but is still fairly simple to knock out over a weekend. As a bonus, it does double-duty as a storage chest for gardening tools and supplies. We made ours from pressure treated southern pine, so it stands up to the elements. It looks great painted or stained and the design is flexible, so you can make the bench as wide or narrow as you need.

Here are the step-by-step instructions.
