A bench for the patio is ideal backyard seating for parties, barbecues, or just for savoring the great outdoors. A patio bench made of wood and concrete is one that’s durable and permanent—no need to bring it inside during inclement weather or off-seasons. Parallel lines combined with smooth concrete legs lend a sleek contemporary look to this patio bench.
Before You Begin
This DIY patio bench is 17-1/4 inches deep, 6 feet long, and 19-1/2 inches high. Seat boards are spaced 3/4-inch from each other by blocks of one-by-six pressure-treated wood.
Use non-pressure treated Douglas fir or similar two-by-eights for the seat boards. To display the wood’s beautiful grain, treat the boards with an oil-based exterior-grade polyurethane wood sealer.
Observe proper safety precautions when cutting the boards with the miter saw or circular saw.
