Wraparound Bench

Martha Stewart Living, August 2006

To complement your backyard with the most appropriate furnishings, you might forgo a trip to the garden center and head to the lumberyard instead. Encircling a majestic black locust tree, this bench delivers 360-degree views. Plus, it always has a shady (and a sunny) side. We used poplar, but any durable lumber coated with weatherproof exterior paint will do. While you can mimic the design of this hexagonal structure, alterations will have to be made to suit your tree and terrain.

    Is there any way to get actual plans for this bench? It would be very helpful to those of us who aren't handy when it comes to woodworking!
