1 - 1"x10" length 10'
A) 2 - 1x10 @ 17 1/4"
"Build the box" as shown above. I left a 3" clearance under the bottom shelf. Use 2" nails and glue. Nail through the sides of A into the edges of B, as illustrated in the above diagram.
Nail the 4 leg trim pieces, C, in place as shown above. Keep the outside edges flush with the bench side. Nail through C into the edges of A and B.
This super simple bench can find uses anywhere in your home. Special thanks to one of our readers for sharing their photos of this exact project plan.
Nail the pieces D in place as shown above. Keep the top edge of the bench flush. You can add a lip to the bottom shelf if you desire (to keep things from sliding off the shelf. This is shown above.
Glue and nail the top piece on, centering the top on the bench. Use 1 1/4" nails.
