I needed a multi-function piece for the the back porch that fit the bill of trunk, bench and coffee table. I didn’t want to create a standard trunk, and took inspiration from the stacked lumber benches I saw at Millennium Park in Chicago. I created what looks like a stack of 2×8 at first glance, but is actually hollow on the inside. It rides on 2” casters so it can be moved around easily. It can hold almost all of the cushions shown in picture 5. It functions nicely as a coffee / diner table for the couch and seats around 4 people. It’s not fine furniture, I know, but it looks interesting and fills many purposes.
