Cool garden bench for beginners

I really like some of the plans these people (PlansNow) come up with.  They're also the editors of Workbench Magazine.  I haven't tried this bench but the plans are only $5.95 and it's a pretty imaginative design.  Also, they seem to carry a wild array of plans for different projects, with lots of different styles to suit your whims.  So if you're not the kind of person who likes to eyeball things and guess at dimensions, working from plans might be your thing.
