Large Porch Bench

I made this gorgeous bench about two months ago as a gift for my mom on Mother's Day. She loves it and It's currently sitting out by her pool. We love how solid and deep this feels. This was my first project where I was using miter cuts, and it took a bit to get used to. I wish I had a brad nailer to help secure the X pieces on the back board. I used pocket screws and plugs, but it was a bit of a struggle trying to maneuver the drill. I ended up having to use a screw driver to make it fit.
