It's 8 feet long, 12 inches deep, and 18 inches tall. The total material cost was about $75 for this bench, and I have materials for five more benches. Some of the coming benches will be taller and twice as deep. I've intentionally put money into the lumber—select tight knot grade Western redcedar—so they're durable and don't require weatherproofing. I want these benches to develop a weathered color and texture.
I was variously going for a fundamental, natural, elegant, and balanced design. I'm not wild about the feet.
The top is attached with five, six-inch carriage bolts. The frame is attached with four, six-inch lag screws.
