This chevron bench was built using cedar for outdoor use but it is so pretty you could use different wood and build it as an indoor bench. Or…build both! At the link you will find free woodworking instructions to build this bench.
This is a link to a Google 3D SketchUp drawing for a wooden bench. You will need the SketchUp software to download this drawing and its freely available online.

This handsome bench hides a hose. Coiled hose is a necessary evil in a garden you need one, but when it is not in use, who wants to see it? Instead, you can store one or two hoses in this handsome bench. It is built from 1-by-6 boards; we used ipe, a rot-resistant tropical hardwood, but you could choose cedar, redwood, or teak for natural beauty and durability.
Alternating thicknesses of lumber give this planter-bench its distinctive linear rhythm. Interlocked with the planters, the bench seat repeats the strong horizontal lines. A handsome detail at each corner of the planters--butted joints with countersunk copper-pipe end caps that mask long deck screws--hints that the project is easy to build.
Outdoor accents to your deck or patio can be both comfortable and useful. A planter bench can function much like a sofa or end table indoors. Scroll down the page at the link to find the free downloadable plan.
