The inspiration for this project came from an old bench I saw in the Melbourne Zoo, whilst on a visit to Australia.
For a little bit about Melbourne,
where the idea came from,
To the right is a picture of the old bench seat that sits in the zoo.
The picture above it is my version of the seat.
Although my version doesn't look nearly as old or rustic as the original, it still turned out to be a mighty bench!
Note: This version of the rustic seat project is written using
metric dimensions (millimeters)
I have written another version in
imperial (ft and inch)
dimensions, which can be seen
The latter version also has slightly different prose, so if there is anything you don't quite understand in this version, you might find the other version useful.
Overall this bench is nearly 1500mm long, 875mm high, and a little over 750mm deep.
On the next page are the plans and a list of materials required for the project.
