  1. Looks good, I might make these for the back porch

  2. i have a 4×8 work table off my table saw and would like to add a side wood clamp on the order of what roy underhill uses so much on the side of his work bench…. it looks like large threaded bolt/w maple added… any plans for that where do i find those parts

  3. All plans are easy to read and understand!

  4. Double seat bench plan was very easy to follow but a couple flaws. First the arm rest 2×4’s state to cut 17 5/8″ on cutting list but need to be cut 23 1/4″. The distance from outside to outside of legs is 17 5/8″ and leaves nothing to screw to for back support 2×4’s. Although this was not much of a problem as there was enough 2×4 left over to fix both ends. Also the front upright table supports need set in 1 1/2″ to account for the back support 2×4’s that are screwed to the seat support 2×4’s on back. I’m a carpenter with over 20 years experience and outside of these two flaws this print is spot on and very easy to understand for most people. I also added a shelf under the table and the miscut boards were used for extra armrest support. Total material cost was roughly $100 and took me 4 1/2 hours. Thanks guys I have plans for two more of these in the near future.

  5. About 6 hrs because of stain and sealer, close to $100 invested, nice plans thanks.

  6. Nice work I’ve made several of those and yours looks much better than the 1st one I built
