These benches can be used for any baseball or softball team.


Follow the steps below to complete this project.


Cut Out Frame Pieces

There are 7 parts to a frame. Part 1 is 11.5" long with a 36 degree cut on the left and a 45 degree cut on the right. Part 2 is 17" long with a 15 degree cut at the bottom and a 39 degree cut at the top. Part 3 is 32.5" long with just a 45 degree cut at the top. Part 4 is 16" long with a 45 degree cut at the top. Part 5 is 18.75" long with a 45 degree cut at both ends. Part 6 is 16" long with a 45 degree cut at the top. part 7 is 31.5" long. You need to make each piece 8 times. (8 frames per bench)


Build Frames

I found it easy to build the frames in a particular order. I connected pieces 2 and 5 first, then 1 to 2, then 3 to 1, then 4 to 5, then 6 to 5, and put 7 on last. You need 8 frames per bench. Frames will be spaced out 4 feet from each other, with 2 of the frames connected in the middle.


Lay Top Boards Down

All top boards are 2"x4"x12'. There are 24 top boards per bench. 8 boards for the seat, 8 boards for the back, and 8 boards for the shelf. Lay them down with the frames 4 feet apart with 2 of the frames connected in the middle.
