Kids Bench
I built the top using 2 boards that had long cracks in them. I ended up splitting them apart and then planing/sanding the edges down. Overall I’m happy with this as it came out strong and with a good look due to the baskets I used. All of this is scrap wood I had on hand.

This is a very interesting design. And you what? My oldest daughter told me lately that she would like to get a small floor rack/cabinet with such baskets for the front door foyer. You just inpired me to come with some similar bench for her. Thank you so much for posting and inspiring me!

It is finished with Safecoat DuroStain Mahogany and Olympic zero voc paint(don’t know the shade of green…maybe Willow Tree). After that I take very fine sandpaper and go over stained and painted areas on the top to get it very smooth. I’m starting an adult sized bench similar to this….should have it up and posted soon!
