Plan of the Week: Weekend Retreat Bench #woodworking #kregjig

The Chief’s Shop Weekend Retreat Bench is probably the most stout and sturdy bench plan I’ve created. I designed it to withstand heavy use, but to be very easy to build.

A couple of features, including the large brackets attached to the legs, are optional if you’re a beginner. The rest of the assembly is made from standard stock, pocket hole assembly, and a couple of laminated sections attached with deck screws.

Lumber required includes: 2x4s, 2x6s, and 2x8s.Overall dimensions: 81 inches wide x 26 1/4 inches deep x 17 1/2 inches high

You’ll need a miter saw, drill driver, and Kreg Jig to build it. A table saw or jigsaw are optional.
