This craftsman style bench is made from white oak with a golden oak stain and clear satin. The bench has plenty of storage and can be used as a blanket chest at the end of a bed.

I made a time laps style video of the build.

Well done! Nice video too. I enjoyed watching you work at warp speed!

Nice, extremely nice build. Do you know many hours you have in the build. Also, where did you find the rope material? When I clicked on the YouTube link, I was already a subscriber to your channel…..and now I know why. Excellent craftsmanship, my friend, excellent craftsmanship.

Thanks Steve,
I have close to 70 hrs in it. I had to have the rope molding custom made in white oak, for some reason I could only find it stocked in 1/2 rounds instead of 1/4 rounds. I had it made by a company called WaltzCraft.
