Friday with Kray: Deck Bench

My husband finally put down his chainsaw and started using the miter saw for his next bench project.  He customized this pine bench for a little space on the edge of our deck.

He used 4 x 4s for the legs, 1 x 6s for the frame, 2 x 4s for some interior supports and 2 x 2s for the seat.  He screwed every piece of the bench together.

Kray was concerned about direct sun quickly drying and cracking the wood.  He covered the bench for two weeks with an old sheet to slow the process.
