When you learn to make a ladder frame, you’ve got the building blocks of a range of builds, including tonight’s project, a bench seat that doubles as a plant pot. Using off the shelf timber, this project only requires basic DIY skills, like cutting and screwing.

Whether you make it a short one-person bench or longer to enjoy with friends, this seat will improve any backyard.
