The corrugated gas line from the manifold is 58 inches long. Locate the grill and structure so there is enough room to safely evacuate the area in case of a fire.

I hope with the pictures and the cut list you’ll be able to see what we did. The top was attached using wood glue, and then nails for extra security.I never quite knew what that actually meant though ?
Another option for attaching the top would be pocket holes on the inside of the long pieces on the top of the frame and then screw into the top from underneath. I did spray the legs, but with a paint sprayer, using latex paint.
We didn’t use a jig to attach the top–only wood glue and nails with a small head for extra security–then puttied the nail holes. My concern with the narrow bench is how sturdy or top-heavy are they?
They measure 36 inches from the floor to the top of the island.
We actually used wood glue and a few small nails through the top of the bench. I plan on distressing the edges so the stain will show through the white to make it pop and match the stain on the top. The gentleman that was asking the question was asking about a completely different project–not these benches–and something he had already stained and painted. It has four in the middle, with two on the sides, cut to length. Wondering where you got the board with 3 hooks on the side of the island?
Considering something similar but i am unsure about the type of wood, how i want to join them, attach to the base, and if it will turn out as nice as yours looks!
We stained them, then used an awesome poly acrylic over that. It might not be the perfect hole (as compared to others), but you can’t see it, and it still worked!
I had more process pictures to share, but we made these very quickly right before we moved, and it was just so crazy of a time. Have you considered simple baseboard trim around the island sides and back?
We actually wood glue and a few small nails through the top!
We used wood glue and a few small nails through the top of the bench. Can you be very specific how exactly you joined the top with the frame?
We have a counter depth island with a 10 inch overhang, so need a narrow bench.
We have young children, so are worried in general about narrow benches or stools topping over. The legs are made out of 4×4 posts, so it’s a good, solid base. Love reading your posts, keep up the inspiration girl!
If it’s not an exact match, you could just adjust the height of the benches by however many inches it’s off by. It’s actually made from reclaimed barn wood that we got from an old barn being torn down. Do you mind sharing the specific poly acrylic you used?
You could also move the 2×4 closer to the edge if you’d rather not mess with it.
