High backed bench plans?

Hey,

I'm looking for similar plans to something like the below picture /email.

Has anyone come across plans like this or have any ideas how to make something similar?

You should be able to guess the dimensions from the picture. Take a sheet of plywood and draw it out full scale. The angle from the seat to the back you could get from one of the chairs in your house. It should be close to the same to be comfortable. This will give you an idea of how to make it. The benches shown must have been bolted to the deck. The base is too narrow for it to be used as pictured otherwise. It would easily be turned over backwards.

My Dad built a similar seat years ago from cedar and 2x4 treated pine, then stained it with water proof boat varnish. The bench was about 48" high x 24" wide x 70" long, with the seat and the back rest having the same dimensions/pattern, being built from 1x6 planks. The seat was re-enforced on the underside framing with 2x4s every 10". Hope this helps. Be safe.

With the photograph of the bench, you should make it to the size your looking for. Make it your own.

I think it's Houzz. I had a customer this week send me a picture through Houzz and I had to sort of open an account with them to receive the picture. I believe that is why it worked for me.
