Male: At the start of the day, the Sturgles front porch was a hodge podge of furniture and none of them really matched. So what I'm doing is building them a couple of full custom benches that will fit perfectly and match their house.
Now if you’re one of those individuals, I know you are and might be a little intimidated by carpentry project, this is a good one to start with.
Now what makes this project easy are the legs. Instead of build four individual legs, I'm only building two. And to do that, I'm using some 1 X 12 pre-primed cedar which you can get at just about any home improvement store.
Now what I did is cut it to 16 inches and ripped it to 10 which is going to give me an overall height for my bench at 16 and 3/4 which is ideal.
Now to give these legs some definition, what I did is create a triangle at the bottom. And to do that I measured over three inches from each side, four inches up, five inches over because that’s my center, made my marks, connected the dots and now I’ve got my triangle.
Real simple cut and that gives us our little triangles which defines our legs. So there we go, two legs done. To attach the bottom support to these legs, I'm using and exterior grade construction adhesive.
Then I'm also using a 16 gauge nail gun with two-inch brad nails. For the top supports, I’m using 1 X 4 pre-primed cedar and to give it a little detail, what I did is put a little angle on the end that kind of matches the bottom of the legs.
And the final step is attach to the top and I’ve go a three-inch overhang on the bench which gives it a nice detail. This project took us about a half hour to build it. Now it’s ready to be painted. This is a great project. Start your carpentry career if that’s what you want to do.
