These are benches made for my niece, who just got her first loom.
There is no hardware used, only oak pegs and glue.
The seat height is adjustable via plug-in stop blocks.
(+plus – the seat makes a nifty serving tray! ;-)

I love simple projects like this. Is it a shaker design? whole lot of thought goes into their work. Nice job on it.

rcj,
There is no pattern—I just, made it.
All lumber came from HD (1×6 x 8 Select Pine Boards).
Tools used were: Saw (your choice), Drill (press/corded—your choice) and a Jig saw. That’s it!
(Oh, yea… and a lot of hand-sanding!)
Give it a Go. You’ll make someone very happy (yourself, included ;-) !

Hey Tom,you said your weaving bench is made from 1×6x8 pine? The pictures make it look like 2×6 x 8. I need to make a bench for my daughter and yours looks really nice.

Hi BK!
It’s all 1X6. The seat is double width (pegged ‘n glued) but still—all 1X6.
I guess you could make it with 2X, but this one is very sturdy.
‘Looking forward to seeing your bench! ;-)
