My brother, Nic, built some convertible benches a couple years ago. He said he found drawings online on how to make them. So I did a quick search and I did find a great tutorial here and showed it to Jamie. I asked him if he could make them and he said sure, how many do you want? I said, how about 4 of them? He laughed and said, how about 2? Okay, I’m good with 2.
Pressure treated pine was on sale at Menards and we still had a full gallon of stain left over from the deck. So in one day Jamie cut all the wood and we stained it that night.
We let the wood dry for 4 days and then Jamie put them together. I love them! They can be used as a bench or as a table. Or put 2 back-to-back and you have a picnic table.
Since the wood was still a little tacky from the stain, we put some old blankets over them and were able to use them around the fire with friends.
