Screw in Bench Top
Mark bench top ends 3-3/4-inch from ends. Line marks up with leg frame ends. Screw bench top to bench frame with two-inch screws and glue.
Finish the Bench
Fill exposed screw holes with wood filler and let dry. Sand the entire bench with medium sandpaper. Refill holes as needed with wood filler and let dry. Sand with medium grit sandpaper, followed with fine sandpaper. Vacuum bench with soft-bristled brush to remove sanding residue. Wipe clean with damp cloth. Apply wood conditioner, stain and clear coat for a beautiful wood finish. Apply primer, three coats of flat paint followed with clear coat for a durable painted finish. Tip: Sand edges before applying clear coat to create a time-worn distressed finish.
