I’ve always really liked the idea of having a booth or booths in my home that would be separate from the dining room and used more regularly as a breakfast nook, or a place to study or just to have more room when we have family over for the holidays.
Anyway, we’re remodeling our whole main floor and I would like to put two non-stationary booths in the newly opened-up kitchen.
Once again, this should be a very sturdy piece.
I had wider boards on the top of the table so that it would share the same look with the benches (4 boards across with one at each end) but she wanted the boards to be similar size rather than scaled up. I’m not sure I’m keen on it yet.
The benches are fairly similar to the entryway bench from my previous blog, but has several significant modifications.
I’m not sure exactly how I want to carry out the joints between the back legs and the backrest support. The angle is a bit awkward to go with a dovetail, but I want something that looks nice.
