Providence Bench for my Front Porch

September 26, 2012 |

About This Project

This project was quick and simple. Just keep in mind and pay attention to the plans where they state "bevel" or "miter". There is a difference!

This project was free to me as we have a huge amount of 2x4 studs left over in our garage from a previous project so I should be able to do the table and another bench for free as well.

It went together within a few hours as the cuts are easy.

Working on the camp loft bed now with some mods to add a stationary bed beneath and more height for my girls room.

Overall great build.

I stained it with one coat of Kona. I did let the stain sit and barely wiped it off that is why it ended up being very dark which is the look I was going for. I then finished it off with 4 coats of polycrylic clear in high gloss which dries very fast and does not yellow.

Estimated Cost: 
$10.00 - 2x4's here are about $1.54 each
Estimated Time Investment: 
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
standard pine 2x4 stud grade wood
Finish Used: 
1 coat of Rustoleum Ultimate wood stain in Kona. This is the best stain ever for dry time (its not clean like gel stain though so it is runny and can get messy just an fyi) It dries within an hour! And only needs one coat! Finished it with 4 coats of Minwax polycrylic clear gloss. Its ultra fast drying and water based for easy clean up. Comes in matte, satin, and gloss.
