Fire Pit Bench Finished

I made this Fire Pit Bench in an afternoon.  It’s a great real life project, that beginners and advanced beginners can make.  The bench is sturdy and since there is a great space underneath it for firewood it’s practical too.  I also really liked the look and I’m considering make a few more.  Outdoor cedar benches always look so nice, and with a little treatment can last a long time.

I found the plan for this in a book I picked up: Black & Decker Outdoor Wood Furnishings You can get it for pretty cheap at amazon.  I’ve seen the same plan published in other Black & Decker books too.  If you haven’t checked out some of Black & Decker’s woodworking books there definitely a great investment.  I’ve created many projects, and been inspired to build other things based on their plans.

For a detailed look at how I built this, and a video you can check out my blog entery over at:

I agree, that looks like a very study bench. Love the underneath storage idea. Great job and thanks for sharing.

That’s one solid table! Great idea on the storage underneath. Like it, so many possible uses for it.
