Most demanding garden owners long for stylish, but also comfortable garden furniture, which are characterized by a high level of easy care. With garden furniture such as garden sofas and garden benches, every garden owner has the opportunity to enjoy the unique beauty of his garden. According to the results of a study, 16 percent of German respondents want to be able to enjoy their own garden even more frequently. That’s why we want to show you how to build your own garden bench yourself.
Build a garden bench yourself – this way you have the desired garden furniture, which also beautifies the whole garden
We recommend that you simply build your garden bench out of pallets. There are actually two types of pallets: one-way pallets and Europool pallets (also called Europallets). One of the biggest advantages of Europallets is that they are very cheap. It is no coincidence that they are used for many DIY garden furniture projects – they usually cost between 10 and 20 euros. Below you will find our first instructions on how to make a garden bench from Europallets yourself.

For a DIY garden bench made of europallets you need the following materials:
- 2 europallets
- A crowbar
- iron angle
- Sandpaper and sanding machine
- a brush
First, a board should be taken out of one of the two europallets. From this palette, you will later build the backrest of your DIY garden bench yourself. For this purpose you should tear out the middle board of the first Euro pallet with a crowbar. The next step is to saw the second pallet. From the larger part you build the seat and from the smaller half they make the front feet of your garden bench. Keep in mind that the wood of the europallets is usually rough. For this reason you should not forget to grind all surfaces with grinder and sandpaper. Otherwise you can hurt your skin later. In addition, there is a risk of damaging your clothes. Then attach the seat to the back and front feet – this requires iron angles . Then your first garden bench should be pickled from Euro pallets. We recommend that you also dilute the stain with water. In this way, the stain can be applied much easier and you do not need a second bottle stain.
