After building a few benches like this, but at a smaller scale with scrap wood, I splurged and bought some pine to build this bench.
It is made from two 8′ long 2×8’s and one 12″x48″ pine shelf. I had the good people from Rona cut the main pieces, then did the dado cuts for the legs with a circular saw, and attached the shelf with hidden pocket holes.
The cover was made from a blanket my wife was knitting, and fits it perfectly.
