I decided to break this plan down into sections because I know that you are probably a busy mom just like me and only have one naptime a day. I’m certain that you could build a panel a day, and have a bench by the weekend! Same rules apply when you build this bench, make sure you are using straight boards, working on a level surface that is clean (even a tiny bit of sawdust can throw you off). Make sure you check every panel for square as you are building it. To save you some time, round up a piece of 1/4″ plywood and use it as a spacer when screwing your slats down. Be safe and have fun!
