DIY farmhouse bench

i wanted to post our building process of the bench that went with our farm table, so here it is -

HERE is the plans we used, again changing the measurements to fit our six foot table.

after building the table, the bench was a breeze. we notched the boards out in the beginning and used one as a guide for our stain color. we also cut all the other boards and sanded them all.
then we put the legs together and attached the frame and supports-
we drilled pocket holes on the inner side boards to anchor the bench top - and it was solid as a rock. and i also had a happy hubby - he pretty much did this entire bench in less than 3 hours (with a few breaks!).

easy as pie after building a six foot table the exact same way :)
