High Back Hall Bench

This is my first commission project for a long time now. Constructed out of Red Oak, it stands about 6’ tall and 3’ wide. This project came out of Woodsmith #172. The back is removable so the bench can be used by itself. The hooks on the back are used to hang coats. Stained with Dark Walnut oil stain and finished with 4 coats of water based poly. This project came out pretty nice and it was a fun project to build.
Thanks for looking.

Very nice results!

Forgive me for asking, as I have not seen this plan, but how is the back attached to the bench in order to be removed? I can think of multiple ways to do this, but how is this one done? Thanks.

Jonathan,
There are a total of 5 bolts that hold the top to the base. They all screw into threaded inserts. There are two visible bolts going down from the curved brackets to the bench. There are three hidden bolts going up from the bench to the back.

After seeing this post, I decided to build this bench for myself. Found the plans on-line and modified them to suit my ongoing living room Craftsman built-in efforts. I used HD pine to save $ as I’m going to paint. Construction was rather simple and attaching it to the wall/floor simplified/eliminated the fussy fastening system. The total cost was under $100 and it provides quite a bit of storage. Many thanks to Thepps for posting this inspiring project!
