DIY cross-leg Garden Table & Bench

How to make it

Note: These plans and material listings are for a stand alone table and one bench. If you require more than one bench (chances are, you will probably want two), then allow for the extra materials.

The legs: Preparing and marking the joint

Out of 2x4 stock, cut the legs for the table and bench - 4 @ 38" and 4 @ 23-1/8".
Make a cut each end 36 degrees off square.
The length along the sides (not the overall length) should be 35-3/8" for the table legs and 20-1/2" for the bench.

Cross each pair of table legs (in an upright position) so the bottom ends are sitting flush on a flat surface and apart 28-3/4" overall, then clamp each pair together in the middle where they intersect. The overall height should be 28-5/8". Refer to the drawing below.

Cross each pair of bench legs (in an upright position) so the bottom ends are sitting flush on a flat surface and apart 20" overall, then clamp each pair together in the middle where they intersect. The overall height should be 16-5/8". Refer to the drawing below.

table legs prepared for marking

Then mark where the legs meet (the intersection), on each side. That will mark the area that needs to be checked out.
