Backyard Builds: Wood Plank Loveseat

If you’ve been looking for perfect outdoor seating for your backyard or patio, but have found readymade options to be lacking in both charm and durability, this project’s for you!

Backyard Builds: Wood Plank Loveseat

If you know your way around a workshop, and fancy yourself reasonably handy with a miter saw and a drill, this slightly-above-beginner-level project is a great way to hone skills like drilling pocket holes, following basic building plans, and finishing wooden surfaces.

Working in a smaller space or don’t have time to do the full build in one sitting? No problem! Each side is assembled individually, so you can work at your own pace, then bring each section together at the end to build the full frame.
