I started by finding some items necessary to form the bench around construction sites for free!
10) Place the 6 inch short piece of Doug fir behind the center of the bend in the siding strip to support outside the form.
16) Lay the 5-inch square wire over the bench form and cut the wire to allow it to fit inside the form.
7) Use the flat trowel to work the top flat while making sure all the stone is pushed down. 11) Use a garden hose set with a wide spray, wash of the top to the degree of exposed stone you would like.
It takes concrete 27 days to set to 90 percent but you will be able to strip the form off after four days. 4) Reuse the side bench 2 X 4 with the 20-degree cuts, measure from the longest edge 5 inches and cut a straight cut.


7) Measure the leftover piece of the side bench to allow the 20-degree angle to double up keeping the angle running the width of the two 2 X 4 pieces.
11) Depending on the height of your bench desire cut two 2 X 4 to the length you need and secure them to the outside of the four small pieces with the 20-degree cuts. 10) Spay sugar water lightly over the concrete wait five minuets, then use a garden hose set with a wide spray, wash of the top to the degree of exposed stone you would like. 1) Mix a small amount of mortar, place some mortar in the slot in the bottom of the bench, butter some mortar on the top of a concrete leg. 2) Lift and gently place the leg into the bench, pressing down to allow the leg and bench to flush. There are many creative ascents you can add to this bench, glued or nailed shapes can make in-prints or placing multiple shapes will create a raised design. I created a bend in the design as I thought it would look better in the garden with the plants.


This will prevent the concrete sticking to the wood allowing you to pop of the wood when the concrete has set. This will bring up water to the top and as you finish you should lighten your pressure on the concrete leaving a smooth finish.
Get some help, as the bench top will be heavy, gently flip over the concrete bench, dig out the packing material this will be where the two legs fit into the bench. Crushed-granite can be used instead of stone in the concrete mix, and then disked down with a diamond blade, which leaves a wonderful colorful finish.
