Fancy Farmhouse Bench

Submitted by Varonec on Mon, 07/20/2020 - 06:40

Made this for the mud room. Been wanting a place to sit while we put our shoes on and take them off. This was a mod on the 63" version of the Fancy Farmhouse bench. I saw a mod similar to this but even more reinforced supports. I used Pocket holes for this first time with the project. from a distance you can't see the covered up screws on the top. I dunno if this was the best way but I wanted a solid connection for the bench and it's legs. instead of a bottom support beam I went with 20" diagonal 2x4's so we could put our shoes underneath the bench.
