Designer Inspired Modern DIY Outdoor Bench

Steve and Amy from DIY Candy were looking for a modern wooden outdoor bench. They found something similar to what they were looking for at Williams Sonoma, for $1295!

So, the couple decided to DIY. For $35 they made a modern wooden bench using no hardware, only wood glue, clamps, and a sander.

Their tutorial is easy to follow, and possible for even the most inexperienced DIY-er, as there are no nails or screws to worry about.

Steve and Amy finished their bench with waterproof sealer for a rich color that can withstand the elements, perfect for an outdoor piece.

This is Steve and Amy’s finished outdoor bench:


This is the Williams Sonoma version:
