This style of bench is very common and there are many varied versions posted around the place. This is my version.
What differentiates this fellow is that it is built mostly out of rough 1×6 (150mm x 25mm) actual (true) size lumber.
But there is more about that further down the page.
I have also authored another version of this bench which can be seen here
So let’s cut to the chase and get cracking. First up the plans, parts identification, and then all the other razzmatazz with plenty of pictures, step-by-step how-to, yadda yadda yadda.
This project is written in both standard (inches) and metric (mm).
The standard measurements are given first followed by the metric measurements in brackets ( ) – for example: 1×6 (150mm x 25mm).
The standard is more suitable for North America and the metric more suited for Australasia.
I hope you find these plans useful and easy to understand, if so – please share. I also appreciate feedback – there is a comments form at the end of the page.
