Greenhouse bench plans

This step by step diy project is about greenhouse bench plans. If you want to learn more about building a rustic wooden table for your greenhouse, pay attention to this project. Follow the instructions and pay attention to the diagrams and build the workbench greenhouse, even if you are a beginner when it comes to woodworking.

You should always plan everything from the very beginning, in order to prevent costly mistakes and to save time. Taking into account the neat design, this workbench can be built in any greenhouse. Mark the cut lines on the slats before making the cuts and use a jigsaw to get the job done. If you are looking for other designs or sizes, you should check out the rest of the furniture plans.

There are a few tips that you should take into account, if you want to get a professional result. Therefore, take accurate measurements and use professional tool when making the cuts or when drilling pilot holes. Align the components at both ends and add waterproof glue to the joints, if you want to create a rigid structure. Round the exposed edges with sandpaper or by using a good router.

How to build a greenhouse bench

Fitting the supports

Fitting the supports

 

The first step of the project is to build the supports for the bench. Build the components out of 2×4 lumber, after taking accurate measurements. Drill pilot holes through the supports and insert 2 1/2″ screws into the legs and into the greenhouse studs. Plumb the posts with a spirit level and make sure the supports are horizontal.

 

Attaching the supports

Leave no gaps between the components and make sure the joints are rigid.

 

Fitting the top slats

One of the last steps of the project is to attach the slats to the supports. As you can easily notice in the diagram, we recommend you to drill pilot holes and to insert 2 1/2″ screws into the supports. Place a nail between the slats to get even gaps between the components.

Last but not least, we recommend you to take care of the finishing touches. In order to get a professional result, fill the holes and the gaps with wood filler and let it dry out for a few hours. Check if there are protruding screws and fix this issue, if necessary.

Smart Tip: Apply a few coats of stain or exterior paint to the components, in order to protect them from decay and water damage. Check out the rest of the furniture plans featured on our website.
