Here’s a really easy park bench you can make in a weekend. I built it just using 2x4s and 1×3 lumber. Here is a rough diagram of the bench dimensions.



  1. hey Steve can u tell me the kreg jig I am wanting 1 but the description on it is max width 1.5 I am wanting to use 4×2 width is 47 mm will the kreg jig take the wood I am a novice woodworker and do not want to go to the expense of buying a jig if it isn't going to take the width of a 4×2

  2. Simple way to make that last a little longer is any surface that has the grain UPRIGHT..facing the sky (end wood), just put a board on it. That keeps the rain from soaking into the core of the wood. Nice Bench. I do think I would have painted or stained it before assembly..and wouldn't that have looked great stained with spar varnish? Yea, I know you like paint.
