I just finished this last night. It's a modified version of the Vintage Workshop Storage Bench. I added some length to make it 48″ wide. Also added a top rail under the seat just because I thought it looked nice. I'll be making some wooden crates to fit into the 3 cubby holes underneath!
I'm liking how it turned out. Thanks for the inspiration. 🙂
I used only wood that I had on hand (3 old 2X6's, 1-2X2 and 2 1X2's), so it was essentially free to build.
I finished it with Mission Oak Polyshade.
