Garden Bench plan
The print is not as expected but it will suffice. I've built many of these but it's been a long time since I built the last one. Needed the print to refresh mu memory. The first order was lost in the mail but Rockler stepped up and re-ordered the print for me and I received it a couple of days later.

english garden bench
I was fairly disappointed in these plans. they were not detailed or to scale. Im on the older slide on eyesight and the extra small print was not helpful. I was expecting more on drawings and got less.

Not what I expected
Drawings are 1/4 scale - there is a cut list but not a "shopping" list - there are a few errors that I picked up on but nothing major so far as I could tell.

I just purchased these plans and...
I just purchased these plans and was very excited about ordering my cypress. I looked at the shopping List and it made no sense. I had to figure what size lumber I needed. To say the least it was a very poor shopping List. I am very happy now that I have my cypress and am under way.

Garden Bench Layout Issue
The only reason I order ready designed plans is so I don’t have to do the all design and size workup myself. When I ordered these plans I expected actual size scale layouts. That is certainly not what I got. The cut layouts are set to ¼ scale. Now I’ve got to go purchase engineering paper and do all the work for the full scale layout myself, which is exactly, by ordering the plans, what I wanted to avoid in the first place . Do not buy these plans unless you are willing to basically do the full workup.

Scale of plan
The design is what I was looking for. However the actual plans are 1/4" scale. They include carbon tracing paper so it is the intent of the product to be able to transfer full size for templates. I have tucked these away until I decide the best method to transfer to full size without great expense.

I was very disappointed. For $9.95 I got four pages. I counted at least 6 different mistakes in measurments and descriptions of parts. Very poor and not worth the money.

I have this plan in an old today's woodworker. Today's woodworker gave a full size plan that I cannot find. The magazine shows the bench and dimension but detail was on the plan.

What wood did you use for the garden bench?
irwin p on Mar 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I used white oak, a good choice for outdoor furniture. The plans didn't have full scale patterns for the legs and required me to create them.
Can I pick up the bench? Where are you located?
Sofia D on Dec 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The bench is not for sale. I did have a lot of fun building it but it is far from perfect. I would recommend the Rockler plans they are quite easy to follow. You just need to have the plans enlarged and use them as a direct template. Good luck.
Does the plan come with a template to trace for the curves?
Bradley G on Dec 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes comes with templates and shop plans
