I don't have any of the major tools needed to make this, I gave them away when my husband died. But my brother in law has them.nhe is always looking for things to make now that he is retired. I think I found his next project and other than materials it will only cost me a pan of my home made brownies.

I'm not much good with tools, but I certainly hope this inspires my hubby to make this table! I know he has the tools and your tutorial seems to be well written. I'm dreaming of our new back yard with our upcoming move. If he doesn't take up the tools I just may.

Very elegant style and a bench that would fit in with many landscapes, and would even look good in an entry hall to help folks remove shoes and boots! By extending the sides higher, it would make a nice table or side bar for either outdoors or in the home! Elegant and practical! Thanks for sharing!

I love how simple this bench is but yet it still looks very classy!

I love the rustic look on this bench. It's very simple.
