Several varieties of covering and styles can be included in the plans including high grade vinyl or genuine leather for the bench top lid. While genuine leather may cost more in the initial investment it will be longer lasting than vinyl and less easy to tear. Leg styles used in piano bench construction include the square, tapered, round and curved designs. The proper bench style should be made to match the interior décor and the specific piano design.
If you have picnic bench table in your yard, you will find it very useful when you are entertaining guests. And you can have it designed to blend perfectly well with your backyard landscape. And if you are going to build it yourself, it would be a lot cheaper and you have full control on what type of materials to use for your table.
However, I strongly suggest that you be more discriminate in choosing the right plans. For example, you need to go for a blueprint with detailed working diagrams as well as step by step instruction that’s easy to implement. Otherwise, you’ll spend most of your time fumbling in confusion.
Some of the choices of wood can be teak and cedar. These are said to be all weather enduring, pest resistant and extremely durable. Teak is used for ship building and is the best wood to be used. There are many benches in England that are more than hundred years old that are made from teakwood.
Aside from that, you may also choose to have the bench customized. You can build some cabinets underneath the work area surface. This will make a good storage for all the important resources as well as tools you’re going to need in working.
Likewise, there are also different designs for you to choose from. Just make sure that the design you choose will blend perfectly with the landscape that you have. You may go for a more ornate design that is more fitting for the style of your home. Or you can for a rustic design if you’re going to blend it with your backyard or garden landscape.
Design and Size
As the bench is required for the garden, the wood selected should be that which can bear all types of weather. If this is the first time you are working on a woodwork project then it is better to stick to cheaper woods. For the next project you can invest in more expensive wood if needed.
