Providence bench

This is my providence bench made from left over scrap wood from our new deck. I used 4x4's for the legs. This bench is SOLID! It is also huge! We had five 6-7 year olds on it last night with room to spare.

Hello. Great build. Love the chunkier legs. Question. Was it only the dimension of the end leg supports that were affected by the mod to 4x4s?

I ended up just eyeballing it but the trick for me was nailing the short 2x4 in the center of the legs on each side. The short 2x4 was the only measurement that I remember changing. This bench has been climbed on, jumped on and beat up and is still as strong as the day I built it! Good luck with your build!!
