This simple one page project is easy ‘no fancy joints or glue’ and inexpensive. The wood should cost no more than $45 for the dimensional cedar at a local home improvement center.
There is a decent sidebar called – “Cutting curves” which shows how to cut the curved seat, the most complicated part. Or you can just leave the seat flat.
Round off slat edges by sanding. Then arrange seat slats until you like the way they look before drilling and fastening them. And finish the bench with exterior oil to keep the cedar color or let it ‘gray’ naturally.
