    I bought that square cut 3 years ago and love it, it even works for my jig saw when I'm too lazy to change saws because ripping with a circular saw still scares me lol.

    A few months ago I made your garden bench. I must say it turned out great for being my first project. I painted it with bright red oil based paint. It makes a world of difference. Thanks for the tutorial.

    Simple way to make that last a little longer is any surface that has the grain UPRIGHT..facing the sky (end wood), just put a board on it. That keeps the rain from soaking into the core of the wood. Nice Bench. I do think I would have painted or stained it before assembly..and wouldn't that have looked great stained with spar varnish? Yea, I know you like paint.

    What is the length of the 2×4 in between the two rails?

    The only 1×3 wood I can find is called fur strips. Are they good enough to use or should I use something else? By the way using a table saw is not an option to rip from a larger dimension wood since I don't have one.

    I like it but the paint no if you use a wood finishing it will be more wonderful

    hey Steve can u tell me the kreg jig I am wanting 1 but the description on it is max width 1.5 I am wanting to use 4×2 width is 47 mm will the kreg jig take the wood I am a novice woodworker and do not want to go to the expense of buying a jig if it isn't going to take the width of a 4×2

    I'm not asking about glue. I was asking about the power tool. The air gun he was using.

  17. Marci36617

    July 31, 2017 at 10:06 pm

    What kind of gun did you use?I'm a beginner weekend project maker and I don't know which gun I should get.

    I'm going to use your frame idea but use old fence panels in lieu of 1×3 for a rustic look.
    Thanks

    I don't have a kreg jig. Could I join the wood by gluing and screwing into the end wood?

    You can do this Chris. Just put extra sealant where legs contact the ground

    Great video steve! Just wanted to know if you have a cut list and assembly for this project.

    what would you recommend Steve? sanding all the boards individually then build or build the project then sand it?

    Hi Steve, really enjoyed this project. I'd like to make one, but slightly bigger. A width arcoss of the 59 inches. Would the same principle work ? thanks in advance. Ed

    Steve, I used your plan and built 2 benches for the wife. She's totally happy and got off my case about not having park benches in your backyard.

    Greatly done!, if you like to woodwork this way roll up your sleeves and search for Woody Hyezmar’s book for a ton of projects, peace out!

    Steve I love your projects, do you have a more in depth cut list and assembly instructions so we don't have to keep referring back to the video.

    Hi Steve, I know this is an old video but I'm curious whether you remember if you had enough wood leftover you could have used to make arm rests on the bench. Flat ones you could screw on top of the existing frame I mean

    I'd like to show you how much further I took the garden bench that you made. I'll put some pics on here so you can see.
