Build a Sitting Bench from Concrete

Updated:2014-04-08 10:22:30

Flimsy garden stones are a dime a dozen, but a sturdy concrete bench is worth the time and energy you put into it's making. A sitting bench made from concrete is a permanent landscape feature that fits in well with any garden theme from the formal to informal. Weather-resistant and easy to care for, a concrete cubic stone, is a welcoming place to sit and watch the birds, read a book or just relax after a long, hard day. Allow several days for this project as the concrete must set.

Instructions as follows:

                                            

Firstly, cut two lengths of 2-by-4-inch lumber to measuring 4-feet long. Cut two lengths of lumber to measure 2-feet long. Cut a piece of plywood measuring 2-by-4 feet.
Secondly, place the two 4-foot boards parallel and on their sides on a working surface. Arrange them so they 2-feet apart. Place the sides for the seat mold over the ends of the top and bottom pieces to form a rectangle. Screw the rectangle together with wood screws. Place the plywood over the rectangle and screw in place. Flip the mold over so the plywood is on the bottom.
Thirdly, cut eight lengths of 2-by-4-inch lumber measuring 2-feet long. These are the sides of the leg molds. Cut two pieces of plywood measuring 2-by-2-feet. These are the bottoms of the leg molds.
Fourthly, arrange four of the leg boards on a flat surface on their sides to form a square. Screw the square tile together. Place one of the plywood bases on top of the square and screw in place. Flip the square to sit on the plywood bottom. This is one leg mold. Repeat to make an identical leg mold. The legs will be 2-feet high, 2-feet wide and 4-inches thick.
Fifthly, fill the joints inside the molds with silicone sealer to prevent the concrete from leaking. Allow the sealer to dry.
