How to build primitive style benches! Free easy plans from Ana-White.com
1 - 10' 1x12 board
1 - 10' 1x4 board
Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!

Attach legs to top with 2" top overhangs.
NOTE: It will be much easier to cut any decorative pattern from legs BEFORE assembly. Make cuts and sand rough edges so all legs match exactly.
Then add side aprons.
