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.
This is the most awesome, easy kit to assemble. Great instructions. I am gonna buy more for my family.
I highly recommend this !
First problem is when assembling the table top / bench back, the picture shows two pieces with slots having a "V" at one end, pointing toward "front". The "V" actually goes toward the back. For "front", strictly follow the stamped wording "front" on the pieces themselves, not the image in the instructions. The worst that will happen though is if you intend for the boards to face a certain way, front to back, they will be assembled reverse.
The next issue with the instructions is that the seat bench is assembled last, with the table/back attached. This is nearly impossible. I recommend that you do not attach the table/back until the very last, or if you do attach it to see it work, take it back off. Arrange the seat bench boards on a workbench or project table, sit the legs with stringers in place upside down on top of those, then screw the farthest one from you down first. This will stabilize things until you can screw down the other two seat boards. Then screw down the stringers, flip it right side up, then you can put the table/back on.
Finally, it is really hard to drill pilot holes with the boards in place unless you have a very long drill bit or use an extension for a drill having a hex base for a socket. If you use new pressure treated boards, you probably don't need pilot holes anyway, just screw it down. For that you definitely need either a very long screw bit or use an extension. There is no way your drill and normal size bit fits without angling all the screws.
Also I recommend not putting the bench boards flush front and back with the edges of the stand. Let them overlap about 3/8 inch so there is a little lip between the board and plastic.
All that said, it is not hard to assemble if you have the right tools and figure out how it goes together before you start. And you end up with a heavy sturdy bench / table that works very well.
