|A chainsaw, log, drill, and lag bolts are all you need to make your own rustic, outdoor bench.|
Lag Bolts (at least 6 inches long)
Drill with 3/4 inch drill bit
1. Cut legs for your benches. Our legs are 20 inches high, but make yours as high as you like. First cut the logs at the length, then halve the chunks.
2. Cut the length of your bench by halving a longer log.
3. Notch out for your seat to sit flat on the legs.
4. Pre-drill two holes over each leg and use your socket set to screw in your lag bolts. You're all done! A coat of poly will protect your benches against inclement weather and rot.
