My boyfriend and I have this old wood and iron bench in the backyard, that after about 11 years, has all but rotted away. I decided to replace the wood in the old bench so people can safely sit on it again- and the timing was great because we are hosting a BBQ in a few weeks.
I went to Lowe’s and purchased 4 pieces of wood which I had them cut down to size for $7 and change total. I also spent about $2.50 on two packages of screws, which I used about 2/3s of.
I did have to cut the two smallest pieces of wood vertically with a handsaw after I got them home but that was simple enough.
The first step to rebuilding the bench was to take it apart. I don’t have access to a jigsaw, so I had to reuse the top piece of wood from the bench but that piece doesn’t get a lot of stress compared to say the seat.
After staining the wood I bought, bolting and screwing things back into place was pretty simple, and we have a bench that can safely be sat on by us or our guests at our upcoming BBQ.
