4x2 outside bench

Postby Reidy186 » Wed Dec 13, 2017 3:06 pm

hello all i'm just getting into woodworking and going to build a outside bench that is constructed using mortise and tenon joinery with breadboard ends
I want to use standard construction timber to build it but have a couple of questions that i'm not sure about

can i use untreated 4x2's if i use paint/preservative it,
can treated be painted?
can i laminate two 4x2's together to make the legs and how would i orientate the grain? like this (()) or ))(( ?

thanks for the advice i will post pictures of the build
