This wood bench is easy to make and looks amazing with your farmhouse, cottage, boho, or any style of decor. At our house, we have a tiny front porch and I have always wanted seating but since there is such little room most outdoor benches wouldn't do.

It's always a good idea to gather the items on your materials list and necessary tools first. Now that we have our necessary materials and tools, let's get started making this easy DIY bench. If you want to add a v-shape to the bottom of your legs here is how I created mine. Find the center of one leg 3″ up from the bottom and make a mark.
Next, use the ruler and connect the markings with a pencil and then cut along the line with a jigsaw. Step 4: Glue and Nail Wood Support to Legs
