I was craving...

i have an 84 by 16×39” Parsons Bench. It is in my second bedroom, up agains the only avalable wall in the room (it’s a gambrel house; my outer walls are slanted inward). The bench has become the despignated storage area for stuff from all the other rooms… stationary supplies form my office/computer area, tools, clothes, books, old computer monitors, junk, sewing supplies and torn clothing, etc. it’s overflowing. so, i drew up a set of plans for a set of sh...

Cross built from double layer cedar 2×4s, 12” wide x 24” tall (above ground). The edges are all relieved with my 1/2” 22.5 degree chamfer bit. I thought...
