Nice bench! I wish lumber was cheap enough to actually build it for $50 though

Very nice plans though, I like how waste is minimized so you get the most out of the lumber you bought.

So the PDF is missing the "Cutting List"
The photos in the original post are a little fuzzy but I reckon I can decipher the list there:

A 9 71 7/8" (Backer Boards, Upper Shelf Legs and rims)

B 4 68 7/8" (work surface and lower shelf rim)

C 4 35 1/2" (legs)

D 4 27" (end rims)

E 5 24" (work surface joists)

F 5 15" (lower shelf joists)

G 7 9" (upper shelf joists)


Does this look right?
