Yes, yes and yes to all three questions. I used a neutral semi transparent 4 year stain/sealer on the pressure treated wood. You could use regular 2x4x6's, but you know what happens to untreated pine sitting outside 24x7x365. It will rot within a couple years. Pressure treated 2x4 rated for ground contact should be around a LONG time. Don't even need to stain it, so long as your ok with it going gray, and crack/checking a little. Mine is to accompany a recently built screen house with some outside seating, so I sealed it with the same stuff used on the screen house. I love this and it is just what I had in mind. The doubling as a table is perfect for my application. By the way, the mechanism to fold the bench back into a table works well and locks into place. Overall the unit seems very sturdy and should stand up to the elements well. A few building tips in the next paragraph if your interested.
If your not going to stain or seal the lumber, no problem if its pressure treated lumber and you don't mid the fade to gray and some wood checking. 1) However if you do stain or seal the wood, sand it a bit first, or you'll need to wait until good and dry before you seal it. Just like a new deck with pressure treated lumber. Pressure treated lumber comes with a surface coating meant to hold in the penetrated treatment. Often stain or sealer simply won't stick or penetrate. A light sanding allows the sealer/stain to penetrate and still allow the boards to "gas out". While your at it hit the edges of the boards to give them a more finished look, rounding the sharp ends a bit. I couldn't stand waiting, so I sealed after putting it together and allowing a few days strong sun drying. 2) Pick out really straight and true 2x4's. Warped ones are a no go here. I found not all of my 6 footers were exactly the same length. Some were off by as much as 3/4". So I simply cut them to be certain all were EXACTLY the same length. Take your time putting it together so you have even flush ends all the way around. An extension on your drill/driver is helpful for getting it into a few of the tight places where screws are needed. The kit will be a 1-2 project on a project scale with 5 being hard. All you need is a drill/driver for pilot holes and driving screws, and a circular saw to be sure the boards are all the same length. If your careful picking out the lumber and find 6 foot pressure treated 2x4's, you may not need the saw. I have bought a second one and 9 more pressure treated 2x4x6.
After reading some reviews about the hard to reach screw locations I found a flexible bit driver that worked really well and made assembly a breeze here’s an amazon link: Ryobi SpeedLoad A10FB1G 11 Inch Flexible Shaft Extension and Bit Holder (For 1/4 Inch Hex Bits, Bits Not Included) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00P8HJF5G/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_Y5hPAbFK0NVR0 I will also attach a picture.
I also went with torx pan head screws to prevent stripping and threw out the ones that came with it. All in with pressure treated lumber and everything it was a little over 300$ for 2 12 foot benches that seats a ton of people. You can’t beat that
On the other hand some of the instructions are just - dumb- and to screw in the seat is fairly annoying in it's angle. It could use improvements. Good concept though.
I used 6 foot 2x4's and bought two of these to make for a 6 foot picnic table OR 2 6 foot benches. I'll have to add pics soon.
I purchased it to make a 5 year wedding present for my wife.... the 5 year is WOOD, so aside from some dirty jokes I had to find something that would be a nice addition to the outdoor living. It makes a nice romantic setting under ou tree which is hung with patio lights and ferns, I would recommend

We are always complimented and asked for purchase details by our guests so they can buy too.
The benches took me (lady of adequate assembly ability) 30- 45 mins each to assemble.
I would definitely recommend painting/varnishing your wood before putting the bench together. Our wood was obtained by a local timber merchant who cut it to our desired length. I think it can be anything from 2ft to 12ft? Anyway we chose 4ft. £20 for the lot.
Benches work well as a picnic bench when we are eating outside as a family and also work well separately as benches (with a backrest) for seating when we've had garden parties.
My husband is 6ft 4 and sits comfortably when the table is up in the picnic bench position.
Hope this helps you in your decision making.
Also UK 2 by 4's are thicker than the ones to fit the bench, so the wooden slats needed to be shaved down to fit.
I would definitely recommend.
I also have issues with the design : with just a little more plastic, the flanges could be made large enough to have actual circular holes in which to secure the screws through, instead of the edge notches it currently has. Also, had the flanges been cast slightly wider for the seat securement, you wouldn't have to angle your bit trying to get the screws in place. The product is a good idea, but not well executed.
Having said that, once completed, it seems to be reasonably stout, I can sit on it without fear of it breaking or collapsing over. Would I buy another? Probably not, but I'll keep the one I have.
READ THE ASSEMBLY MANUAL FIRST!!!!! Pay special attention that pieces are to be cut to TWO lengths (lumber shop will cut wood for you, be prepared to cut wood yourself if you missed the part about two lengths)
I moved the legs slightly more from the edges of wood pieces, to avoid wood cracking. Please note if you put the frame at exactly the edges of wood pieces as suggested by the manual, you are risking the edges will crack soon after assembly, potentially threatening stability of the bench. If you really want the frame at edges of wood, predrill holes for screws.
For added stability I bolted the bottom of legs to the deck (I have access to under the deck where the bench stands)
One star off for: not perfect alignment of holes with wood
Took me about two hours to build. I estimate it can be done in under an hour by someone working in the most efficient way, without beer brakes (not including time to shop, cut, and deliver lumber)
problème mais quelqu'un d'autre aurait retourné le produit. Veuillez aviser le fabricant qu'une pièce n'avait pas été percée.
