Making Raised Panel Doors With A Routerhow to Making Raised Panel Doors With A Router for Somebody''s gonna whisper, she''s from. She thinks she lives in Hollywood now. And they are so right. Despite plans for ice fishing this weekend, I''ve got the table, and now it''s Wood Slat Long Bench, loving the modern simplicity of this style. I especially love simple clean lines outdoors because you are contrasting against the natural organic shapes of the outdoors.
If you are intimidated by the size of the table, starting with the bench is a good idea. Not only will you have an opportunity to make mistakes and learn from them, the investment (time and moneywise) is considerably less. Also, the bench could serve a variety of other purposes besides as a dining area seating surface. Think holding planters, elevating plants for sunshine, or just a simple reading spot.

General Instructions. It is a good idea to sand and finish your boards (paint or stain) before constructing to seal all edges. Work on a clean levels surface. Mark out your joints before fastening joints. Predrill and countersink your screws before attaching. Use glue unless otherwise specified. Check for square after each step. And please work safe and smart, using proper safety equipment.
Build the Frame. Begin by fastening the blue supports to the yellow ends using 2″ screws and glue. Then fasten the green aprons to the yellow aprons as shown above, using 2″ screws and glue. Square up your frame by taking a diagonal measurement, and adjusting the square until both measurements are equal.
Bench Slats. Mark the slat boards 1″ from the ends on both ends. Also mark two of the boards 3/4″ in on the outer edge. These are your outer boards. Line these boards up on the ends, overhang of 3/4″ as shown above and screw to side aprons and supports. Fasten the remaining slats to the top, as shown above, leaving a 1/4″ gap between the boards. Use the 1″ marks to line up with the outer edge of the support underneath. It may help you to use the board from step 3 as a guide when lining up your slats.
