The last piece to our farmhouse table is complete! After handing my wonderful husband a cut list, he built our bench all by himself. While he was doing this I was in the backyard pulling weeds. I really think he got the better end of this deal.
The only problem with the construction of the bench was the legs were not completely squared off. This made the bench a little wobbly until we put the non-scratch pads on the bottom and fixed the problem.
Farmhouse Table Bench
This bench has the exact same design as our farmhouse table with just two long boards in the middle instead of the three that are in the table. I also changed the overlay of the skirt by accident, but it just makes a difference for the cut list if you want to copy and keep the overlay of the joints the same (insert measurement difference).
I am not going to go through the step by step on this post, I recommend going to our farmhouse table post for the step by step but using this material and cut list.
Cost of Materials*:
* only new materials I had to buy was wood and sandpaper, all the rest I had leftovers from table.
Total Cost: around $50.00
2 – 2X8 @ 4’ 5″ (top boards)
I was so excited to send Alex off with the cut list that I forgot to check if on leftover wood from the table. This project would have been a lot cheaper if I had checked. Oh well. Now I have tons of spare wood laying around for future projects.
As for the finish, this is also the same as the table. We actually didn’t pay any more money for the finishing supplies because we had enough left over from the table.
