To start, make sure you have 6 equal sections for the bench, and have space between your tree and the bench. Have the diameters measured.


With the seat boards cut to size, lay them in a hexagonal shape and adjust at the joints.


Cut and assemble the legs. you’re going to need about 12. Once all leg sections have been built, assemble the bench and level it.
