30+ Cheap Diy Outdoor Bench Design Ideas For Backyard And Frontyard

I would look at the space and decide how big an outdoor bench I would like to build.I wouldn’t want a monster of a bench in a little piece of yard overpowering the area, so I would choose a design that fits in and might enhance the area rather than overpower it. To help me decide I would look through a portfolio of outdoor bench plans and decide on a design based on the size of the bench and what I think might look good there.

Next, I would then choose a material that fits around what I can get locally, and at a good price. Fortunately my favorite timber, cedar, is widely available at most lumber yards, generally already in the sizes I need and at a price I can afford.

However, that’s not all there is to choose from, and many of you may prefer to use a building lumber like pine, it’s certainly cheaper than cedar but if you are going to leave it exposed to the weather, it will need to be protected with a good quality wood preservative or a few coats of paint. Cedar is OK left exposed.

And Lastly, I would decide from my outdoor bench plans, what tools I may need if I haven’t already got them. I have built up a good tool collection of tools by only buying what I immediately need for a job, rather than spending much. I also look around second hand markets as I prefer to use older good quality tools rather than cheap imported stuff.
