This is a good solid outdoor table with a separate stand-alone bench.
The plans allow for one bench, but it would be easy enough to double up and make two benches if you prefer a bench each side of the table.
Ft and inch version
This setting is ideal for a garden or lawn. It’s a stand alone cross-leg table 80″ long by 30-3/4″ wide with a separate bench seat 80″ long by 15-1/4″ wide. It is a good size table with a wider than normal bench.
The unit is made solely out of 2×4 and 2×8 treated lumber (nominal size).
Refer to page 7 ‘Wood and wood sizes’ for an explanation regarding the wood sizes.
Here is a design that I think is ideal for a garden or lawn. It’s a stand alone cross-leg table 2m long by 770mm wide. There is a separate bench 2m long by 384mm wide, which is a good width (wider than most).
