I remember m grandfather had made a very simple bench years ago along these lines and it was so,sturdy it lasted forever! A bench is so handy for extra seating and especially nice to seat a group,of kiddos at a picnic table. I could see painting this in some fun colors and even stencil some animal shapes on the sides and top for added whimsy! Super idea!
