Bench and side tables

Submitted by torito on Tue, 06/30/2015 - 11:27

Bench was made using the plans on the site. I modified the plans to create these accompanying 15" x 15" side tables. cut list for each table:

7 2x4 at 15" each (stained for the top part of the table).
4 2x4 @13 1/2" each (for legs)
5 1x4 @ 15" each (used for the top of the table)
2 1x4 @ 8" each (used for the top of the table)
4 1x4 @ 17" each (for legs)

Time varies depending on if you cut, sand, stain, and treat the lumber for outdoor use. The estimated time below is does not include time for the stain/weatherproof treatment.

Estimated Cost
1 table: $10 - $15
bench: $45
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)

Love your color scheme. I'm going to attempt making this bench. Did you use both glue and nails and if you used nails, where did you nail it in and did you try to hide the nails later? I'm a complete nubie in terms of wood work. Thanks!
