This is a kitchen bench that was made for a friend. It is 8’ long by 4 ’ tall. She was pleased.

This looks great, Dave. My wife has asked me to do this in our breakfast room, so I’ll be tackling this during the summer most likely. Any lessons learned you can pass along? Looks like this was build mostly out of framing lumber for the carcass and then bead board and some other material for the trim- what did you use for trim?

I used poplar for the trim. It paints great. I extended an existing outlet to the front. I pick up a strip outlet and removed the “outlets” then used the cord. The seat on the large bench is one piece of plywood, this adds strength. Carefully mark the openings and cut. I had a 1/2” overhang on the lids. It takes a ton of pocket holes. This hides any fasters from showing. seats are 18” tall and 15” deep. Total height is 4 ft. Good luck on your seating project.

Dave, this looks awesome! I especially like the slanted backrests and the electrical outlet’s placement. Great job!
