I built 4 to give away this Christmas. I also painted them with Milk Paint. First time that have used it and both the benches and the paint came out great. Great project!

I have built about 6 of these already and have given them as gifts to family and friends. Pine or poplar - this is a great easy project.

I enjoyed the project almost as much as my family has enjoyed using the finished bench. The instructions were well documented. The photos and drawings helped visualize the steps as well as helping look ahead preventing wrong moves. I did have a little trouble aligning the side braces with the legs but a sander erases any doubt that I knew what I was doing. I chose common yellow pine and a clear poly finish. I intend to make more for gifts to family and friends. Thanks for another well thought out DIY project.
