How to make a wooden bench from reclaimed wood. Recycled wood projects, whether it’s from pallet wood or old fence palings, the end result can be fantastic! In this video l am using reclaimed hardwood fence palings to build a rustic wooden bench seat. Rustic wood furniture has to be one of my favourites.
Reclaimed wood furniture is making a comeback and for good reason. It’s environmentally responsible and the cost of the project can be cheap because you are utilizing somebody else’s trash. It’s win win.

For this Bench Seat Project You Will Need:
10 Hardwood Palings
About one metre (4 feet) of Fence Rail.
Drop Saw or Circular Saw.
Method to Build the Rustic Wooden Bench:
Cut your reclaimed timber hardwood palings to length. You will need three long one’s for the top (you can cut these to any length you want). You will need to cut eight lengths for the legs at 500mm (about 19 inches).
Cut a taper on the legs as per video.
Glue and nail the legs together as per video.
Construct the frame for the bench by using palings and fence rail as per the video.
Attach the legs to the table using a generous amount of glue and nailing them to the frame.
Attach the three longest palings to the top of the frame.
Sand and apply two to three coats of marine grade clear satin varnish to the entire bench sanding with a 180 grit paper between coats.
And there you have it. A great little weekend project for anyone to complete over a weekend.
