A friend of mine was in need of a new outdoor table, and I was in need of a project. So, after a quick consultation with my supervisor, Bob Barker, we decided to make a table for him.

A friend of mine was in need of a new outdoor table and benches. So, along with the supervisor, Bob Barker, we got to work. We already made the table and now was the time to add the benches.

Just like with the table, we used all 2x6 cedar deck boards for the build. The cedar should do well for outdoor furniture.

The build was very similar to the table, so that helped make it go smoother. The hardest part was figuring out the sizing so it was a comfortable match. Once we settled on that, the rest was just a matter of getting the job done.

The end result was better than expected. More importantly, my friend and his family love the tables and benches. I have a full video of the build on YouTube if you want to see the whole process, and will add a video for the benches once those are done.
