Learn how to build a cable spool bench

Wire Spool Garden Bench

Looking for a nice outdoor furniture for your porch or garden? Here’s a DIY outdoor bench that’s not only cheap but also sturdy and pretty if you’re into rustic furniture!

Wire Spool Bench

This garden bench is made from an empty wooden cable reel and a pallet assembled in a simple yet stylish manner. If you can get your hands on a cable reel that’s not being used and pallets for free, then you can practically have an outdoor bench for a song. It’s also very easy to make, using only simple tools that DIY-ers would most likely already have in their tool sheds.

You can modify the design to make it look uniquely your own. You can choose to paint it, put a backrest or extend a small space on the armrest to place your drinks on! Need some inspiration to get your creative juices flowing? Have a look at our album below 🙂
