  2. What’s the spacing in between boards (b) and (c)

  3. Great plans I’m building my grand daughter this , this weekend. Quick question, the 2x4s cut 25 degrees in opposite direction is the measurements from long to short or long to long. Thank you

  4. Sorry got it now , I had a brain fart lol

  5. Good plans, took a little over 2 hrs with sanding. Added an umbrella center hole for some shade

    Kid loves it

  6. These plans are very easy to read and the step by step instructions make the task look simple as can be. Thank you for taking the to create such wonderful past time hobbies

  7. Consider leaving 1/4 or 3/8 gap between top and seat slats. Allows for air flow for wood to dry and makes cleaning the top easier.
