I made this piano bench a year ago. I took the dimiensions of the piano bench at my in-laws fifteen years ago and saved it till someone took interest in our piano. Its made from clear pine. One of the big box stores in my ares sells its damaged wood. I grabbed a stack of tongue and grove pine. Removed the T&G, surfaced and glued up the top, legs and sides. Bottom is 1/4 mdf I had left over. Construction is mortise and tenon. I don’t think I have fifteen dollars in it. Bench is sanded, sealed, primed, spray panted and finished with a poly top coat. Inside paint is left over too. Thanks for looking.

I like it. I have to build a storage bench for my house and now I think I know how I’m going to build it!

A wonderful bench, functional and looks great and the cost you have in it makes it outstanding!
