A while back we made the cedar H-Leg dining table and it has been quite the hit. However, we never got around to making the benches, that is until now. For the benches I decided to take the time to mill down the 4×4 to the actual dimensions of 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ so that, proportionally, it would look right with the table. I also decided to make two benches for each side instead of one long one so it would be easier to get in and out of the middle.
You’ll be able to find the plans for these bench over on the StrongTie Blog. This is a website put on by Simpson Strong-Tie that is full of great project ideas as well so be sure to have a look around while you are there. Enjoy!
