I am in the retirement period of my life. I do a bit of cabinetry, create musical instruments, and conduct woodturning in my small shop. I have a shelf full of woodworking textbooks – but I discovered this woodworking guide, “pepe amazing plan” (Google it). The comprehensiveness of this book is astonishing. Every subject matter of the book is covered effectively.

Thinking of making this. It looks awesome, great job. Quick question though. My husband says that critters sand spiders will make nest in the openings of the blocks. Do you see this being an issue?

Shenika Daniel says:

Did you sand in between spar urethane coats, if so, what hand sander did you use for this?

What is the measurements for this project?

Andrea Aralica says:

Wow 🙂 I just search for ideas for small balcony in the city…but, think this will be very useful.
I planned to build a fence (for some privacy feeling 🙂 )from wood and didn't know which furniture to make. I have some pallets to use, but this idea seems some much better.
Thanks for your video, I'll also film my balcony renovation, so be free to watch 🙂 🙂

It really looks like a professional bench you bought. The grey color is universal to ANY patio or deck.

I just completed this project and would like to suggest the following tips:      1)  1 row of the blocks that form the base of the bench should be half (4 in. wide) blocks.  This will make the bench equal to standard chair height.  A base with a height of 3 regular blocks won't allow the average person (especially shorter people) to be able to comfortably rest their feet on the ground.      2) The blocks that form the backrest should have the flat side meet the base, so that more surface area with adhesive can bond the backrest to the base.       3)  Adhesive definitely works, provided you use the right one.  I use Sika landscaping block adhesive and the bond is super strong.  However, if you are still weary of safety, you can use 4" c-clamps to reinforce the joint between the backrest and bench.      4) Three 4x4s are enough for the seating (5 total).  The 4th one for the seating isn't really necessary unless you plan to use cushions for the backrest (to keep the pillows from falling through).      5) Use the best side of the lumber for the surfaces of the bench.  Sides with splinters will slowly tear up your cushions.
