Building a simple yet sturdy bench

Here is my simple bench , I re-purposed the wood from my old deck table into a bench
Re-use , recycle , right!

Simple yet sturdy construction , just joists , fence posts and screws

Figuring out where to place the legs

I then sanded and sanded the edges and surface smooth , don't want any splintered hinnies... currently I am working on painting it black , I will show you it completed tomorrow .

Chris, you continue to amaze me with your 'get to it' attitude. Great repurpose and reuse of the materials. It looks so sturdy. Knowing you and your sewing skills, there will be a fun cushion on it in no time.
