Planter Bench

Planter Bench Woodworking Plan

This Planter Bench is designed for an intermediate woodworker, the project takes about two days to build. You may not be able to see this immediately from the picture, but the bench has a good wide seat. Alternating thicknesses of lumber give this planter-bench its distinctive linear rhythm. Interlocked with the planters, the bench seat repeats the strong horizontal lines.

The planter-bench has three main parts: two planter boxes and a center stretcher-shaped bench. The long sides of the bench slip into grooves in the planter sides. A handsome detail at each corner of the planters is butted joints with countersunk copper-pipe end caps that mask long deck screws.

The overview page of this plan has links the main plan in a pdf format. The pdf is four pages long, with very thorough instructions, some extra photos, and good diagrams, tools lists and more.
