The Basic Bench is a simple, yet sturdy, bench for your cabin or patio. You’ll need a simple hand saw, a screwdriver and about 32 40mm screws. Sand down the seat to avoid splinters. Finish the piece with paint, oil or wax – at the very least treat the bottom 10cm of the legs for outdoor use.

The construction will carry a lot – at least three large individuals will sit comfortably.
