Definitely a fun project(s). I started Using pine, countersinking wood screws, and brad nailer. Now I’m using a kreg jig and ripping my own 1xs out of birch plywood. The top pictures in the doubles were my first draft and the bottoms are my second draft. I sold my first bench! Next buy is a table saw , router , miter saw, then on to some cabinet work! Thanks so much for the step by step designs. Oh and I‘ve been cutting everything with my skil saw. So the bench is 21”t x5’w x15.5 “deep the top is plywood ripped into 1x10 but top 1x is 10.5” deep 5’ wide also. Basically just made everything to fit my spot in my house . Not bad for third set of actual furniture.
