There's room for a rustic garden bench in almost any garden. And it makes a nice quiet spot for you to relax. Follow our material and construction instructions to build a full-size one for adults.
By the way, it's really easy to make a child-size one for the little ones, too.
Here's what you need:
For the back: 2 uprights (length according to the height required), 1 plank (approx. 120 cm long) Round timber, approx. 30 cm diameter
Another 2 pieces of round timber for the feet, approx. 30 cm long, approx. 30 cm diameter
Chain saw with low kickback chain, e.g. STIHL MS 171 with Picco Micro Mini
12 screws, approx. 150 mm
Step 1 of 4: Chock the round timber with wooden wedges or similar to prevent it from rolling away. To make a seat, the round timber has to be cut more or less in half. Draw a sawing mark on one of the faces first and then along the long sides.
Now saw out the seat, starting with a vertical cut into the center of the round timber. Then
turn the round timber 180 degrees and make the cut from the other side
Step 2 of 4:Now make the feet. Make a v-shaped cut in each of the two short pieces of round timber to fit the seat and fasten in place with screws
Step 3 of 4:Screw the uprights onto the feet and the seat
Step 4 of 4:Finishing off: All that's left is to fit the back. Screw the panel onto the uprights at the desired height using 2 screws on each side.
Hope this was a helpful tip how to use you MS 170 STIHL Chainsaw.
