Building an accent bench can enhance any outdoor area. In this video we still building the two end frames along with the front and back frame to create the bench base. Before putting everything together, cut all pieces to length on the miter saw. Once the rails and stiles are cut, label them so you use them correctly.

Start with the end frames. Attach the end rails to the end stiles with glue and pocket hole screws. The top of the upper end rail should be flush with the top of the end stiles, and the bottom edge of the lower end rail should be 2 inches above the bottom of the end stiles. Using a router fitted with a 1/4 inch rabbeting bit, cut a 1/4 inch deep rabbet along the interior back perimeter of each end frame. Use a chisel to square the rounded portions of the rabet at each corner. Scribe to fit each end panel and attach with glue and brads.

Next, you can build the front frame with the same steps as the end frames. The top of the upper front rails will be 6 inches from the top of the front stiles. The bottom edge of the lower front rail should be 2 inches above the bottom of the front stiles.

The back frame is built much like the end frames and the front frame. The only change is that the top of the upper back rail should be 3/4 inch down from the top of the back stiles. Also, the middle back rail should be 16 1/4 down from the top of the back stiles, and the bottom edge of the lower back rail should be 2 inches from the bottom of the back stiles. Next, cut a 1/4 inch deep rabbet along the interior back perimeter of the back frame assembly. Finally, attach the back panels with brads.
