Build an Outdoor Storage Bench

Finished Bench
When making an outdoor storage bench it's best to cover it with outdoor waterproof fabric.  The lift-up seat makes it a great place to store stuff and the structure itself is simple so that you can customize it to suit your space.

The above bench is made using pine which is an inexpensive wood.  If you want you can choose a more durable wood such as cedar, redwood or teak. The pattern is very easy to follow and allows you to make modifications to the bench. The instructions go through how to choose the right upholstery fabric, shaping the rails, assembling the frame, and making the seat.
