I have been wanting an outdoor bench. Pinterest to the rescue for ideas. I found multiple contenders but ultimately settled on this one.

There was just the major problem of the supports being metal.
I solved that problem with some scrap 2x4's instead.
I was hoping that I had a nicer board laying around but all that I could find was this pine 2x10 that had been used in a concrete form. I made the gap for the board bigger just in case I come across something thicker that I like better.
I think I will stain the top natural and paint the supports black. Depending on how it turns out it may or may not make it outside.
