What to do with the left overs from rebuilding 400 feet of cedar fence? Build patio furniture of course. I had a pile of cedar 2×4s and a few pickets left over from the project so I put this together for the patio. I ripped the 2×4s to 1 3/4 square and built the frame using pocket hole joinery. The top and sides are planed down pickets that I ship lapped and inset into the spaces. The bottom shelf is simply two pickets cut to fit. The “finiish” is just the same sealer I used on the fence. It was a fun project to build that came together as I went.

Jim, The handles came from Lowes. I’ll see if I still have the packages and send you the SKU#.

Jim, Sorry, I have since cleaned off the bench and no longer have the packaging, but they should be easy to find.

Thank you – I will keep them in mind, and look at Lowe’s. There is a store really close by me. Right now I don’t have a spot for them, but I like the way they look on your nice build.
