We LOVED this project. It was pretty simple, yet the outcome was beautiful. We used 2x8 boards for the tops of the benches, just to make sure we had enough space. We also have a toddler, so the bigger seating area is perfect for his booster chair. If you wish to use 2x8s like us, you will want to cut your middle support board 7" and the end aprons/stretcher at 10". So for example;
Cut list for one bench (adjusted for 2x8 boards on top):
2 - 2x4 @ 66" - long aprons
4 - 2x4 @ 16-1/2" - legs
4 - 2x4 @ 10" - end aprons and stretcher
1 - 2x4 @ 7" - middle
We used the normal plans for the table. The total came out to be $110 for both the table and 2 benches. That includes all the wood and screws. We were lucky in that we still had stain and wood filler from previous projects. Overall, I would 100% recommend these plans. Thank you ANA White!!!!
