At this point I positioned where I ultimately want the bases, and measured how long the wood needs to be. Overall, I decided to make my bench about 5 1/2 feet, however this would be easy to adjust depending on what size space you have to work with. I then cut three 4x4 boards to size, accounting for about 1 1/2 inch overhang on each side of the base.
