How to do this project

1

the back rest is at a 110° angle so I cut 3 2x4s to the angle and screwed them to the back of the bench to brace the back seat.  I also used 2  4" bolt screws to lock in a 2x4 bottom brace.  I cut a half of a half of a pallet and used it as the am rest and bench legs and I drilled pallet slabs on the inside of the arm rest to give it an even more rustic look.  I only used one cost of the dark walnut stain, sanded it with a 220 grit before finishing with 3 coats of  polyurethane.  I really wanted to bring out the beauty of the wood on the back rest so I took my time with the sander.  it was a very fun project!
