This is a corner bench for a clients kitchen nook, they wanted one that did not have a corner section since they do not have alot of room. Making without the 45 degree section proved to be a little trickier than I thought. I huess this is why you can’t buy one without one.

When you say “trickier thank you thought” are you talking about the compound miters? It came out nice, did you get any pictures of it in place with a finish on it?

Great looking project. Very clean looking – it should look awesome with the right finish applied!

I have not applied the finish yet, I am planning on doing it tomorrow. I will take pictures of everything once it is in place.

Yes the compound angles were kid of tricky, figureing it out before building it proved to be a challange as well. It would be alot easier to do with a corner piece, I guess this is why you dont see many sold without them.

Well done. Sharp, clean lines, good looking wood. Missed this one first time around, worth a second look.

How did the clients like it?
