Re How to make a garden seat
Hi. I used your site plans to make a garden seat for my 9-year old daughter, who helped.
The plans worked great, and I am attaching a picture.
I would agree with other builders comments --
to slant the backrest to 15 degrees, not 10, and to use 4 inch carriage bolts, not 4 1/2.
I seem to have an overhang on both sides of over 6 inches, but it still looks swell.
The whole thing took about 4 hours, if you include looking for tools and yelling at my kids.
We plan to stain and weatherize it, and to cover the ends of the carriage bolts with rubber covers so no one scratches themselves.
Thanks for a great site and a fun project for the novice!
