Default Outdoor Bench

Here is a possible new project I think I will build. It should be a handy helper for the new BBQ pit.

I included the pic I found on the internet. Pretty simple to build. My final dimensions may be altered to make the height work for me.

nice design. It will fit well with the new patio, with the wood fencing in the background. Are you going to finish the top to keep stains away? Around here there'd soon be some spiders underneath. But then, you could use some peppermint oil on legs and underneath to keep them away. Would smell good as well.

Do you think expansion and contraction will be a problem since it will be outdoors, in the weather and heat?

Great fold-up & stow away table idea Mike, I can most certainly make use of one myself, thanks for the great idea.

I can't say it's the exact plan, but i made a similar table about 3 years ago, scaled it up to be about 24" deep. Has weathered nicely, and the folding feature allows it to fit easily in the shed over the winter. You'll like it!!

Thanks Earl. I need to play with the dims to make sure the legs will fold and not hit each other. May just be a simple matter of making the bench frame a little longer. I think with the existing length, the bench will also serve as a drink stand in between chairs.

Maybe I will get to use my router some...do a little roundover on the boards on top just for decoration.
