Rustic X-Bench

Submitted by wibblee on Wed, 05/16/2012 - 17:46

I watched the tutorial video first and then got right to it. My two, little boys played in the driveway while mommy rocked her off-square bevel cuts. I modified the 1x2 and instead used what I had on hand - extra 2x2s. Worked out great. Also, I used three reclaimed pallet boards for the top of the bench. I added an extra cross-support to handle the load.
