Bring the beauty of Northern California to your backyard with this classic redwood bench. Sit comfortably on its curved seat and perfectly angled backrest. Ok, I don't actually know that the angle on the back reset is perfect...just go with it. I'm not a benchologist, but I do know a great free woodworking plan when I see one.
This plan has everything you need to build a Mendocino Bench including wonderfully colored diagrams and all of the dimensions required. They also included the adjustments to the plan if you want to transform this bench into a built-in for your redwood deck.
This plan is brought to you by the California Redwood Association and as an added bonus, they have included useful information regarding Redwood and how to finish this type of wood.
