I designed and made this bench to be an easy build, especially for someone with limited tools.

I love using pocket holes on my projects and this one could easily be built with them, but I wanted to make it without them so if you don't have a Pocket Hole Jig you don't have to worry!

Cut List:

  • 4- 2x3 boards @ 17 3/4’’ cut 10 degrees off square ends parallel *cut boards with the 1 1/2’’ side laying on the saw bottom, the 2 1/2’’ side will be against the fence (legs)
  • 2- 2x3 boards @ 8 5/8’’ long point to long point cut 10 degrees off square ends NOT parallel cut with 2 1/2’’ side on the saw bottom, the 1 1/2’’ side against the fence (opposite of the legs) (center leg supports)
  • 2- 2x2 boards @ 17 1/4’’ long point to long point cut 45 degrees off square ends NOT parallel (center bench and leg supports)
  • 1- 2x10 board @ 60’’ (bench top)

Step 1: Attach Center Leg Support to Legs

Build Legs sections for bench
Build two sets of leg sections.  Be sure to use wood glue and clamp your pieces while you drill to keep them in place.  Place the top or bottom of the legs flush with a flat surface while you build, this will help to keep everything square.

Step 2: Attach Legs to Bench Top

attach leg sections to bench top
Use wood glue and clamp legs to bench top before pre-drilling and putting in screws.  Then drill at an angle into the legs and the bench top.  Attach leg sections on both sides of bench top.  

Step 3: Attach Center Bench and Leg Supports

add center supports to leg sections and bench top
This is one of the most important steps to make your legs really sturdy.  Use wood glue and attach screws at an angle in to the supports and bench top.  If you have a nail gun or hot glue handy, either one will help to secure the boards in place while you pre-drill and add the screws.

Once your bench is build sand and finish as desired!  For more details check out my tutorial at Remodelaholic.
