Outdoor height dining set. My sheets, I did this using a combination of my tracks on my table, saw I'd like to do it all on my table saw, but some of the pieces are just too big to either physically fit or to handle. On my own, once all of my pieces were down to a manageable size, I could start putting things together, so we're gonna start with this really beefy bench. That's gonna be good for about four people to sit on. I started by taking four pieces that were slightly oversized and laminating them together. I pretty quickly realized that in the sun the glue was just drying way too fast.
So I move things into the garage and actually, that was kind of the biggest challenge of this build. Just barely having enough space in the garage to function, it was constantly stepping over and on the material, but luckily, as the pieces got finished, I could just move them to the backyard and out of the way. So I guess in that sense things kind of got easier. As I went along anyhow, while those were drying, I started cutting the rest of my bench pieces down to their rough sizes, and this is a pretty repetitive process of just ripping things to the width and then cross-cut them to length.
So, let's cut away to a drawing, that's gonna help, explain how things go together, so the bench is comprised of four sub-assemblies, we'll call them the top to sides and a center stretcher. Each sub-assembly is made of several pieces laminated together, the top, as you already saw, is made of four pieces. The legs are made at eight pieces, each three larger pieces that make up the overall height and the width four pieces that create a ledge for the seat to rest on and one piece to finish off.
