There are lots of spots on our property that need a bench that don’t have one yet. The most I’ve done so far to rectify this is to collect plans for building garden benches. Yesterday I got the latest issue of Lowe’s self-published magazine, The Woodpost. (You can sign up here if you’re interested.) In it, there was a plan for making a garden bench that seemed pretty simple and straightforward. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find it on their website. (I suspect it will eventually be here.) But in the course of looking around for it, I found plans for a different garden bench that actually looks a little more classy, but is probably also more difficult to make. If you check the Outdoor column of this list, you will find several other projects to enhance your garden–arbors, pergolas, windowboxes and the like.
No, I don’t work for Lowe’s and I’m not getting paid by them. I just read my junk mail.
