How to Make It

  1. Start by buying picnic-style benches that arrive unfinished but assembled. Choose graduated sizes that fit the space you have in mind. We used 13-inch-wide benches that measure 36 inches, 48 inches and 60 inches long.
  2. Stain or paint the three benches as desired, then add a clear top coat following manufacturer's instructions.
  3. Center the benches on top of one another and use wood glue to secure.
  4. When the glue is dry, securely fasten the benches together using a drill and screws.
