My son called me on day and said he and his wife had seen a corner bench and shelf that they liked but the company wanted $700 for the set. He sent me a picture from a catalog and ask if I could come up with the plans for making a set. I told him yes if I had a few dimension I could design it. So he sent me three dimentions of both the bottom and top the rest I figured out. He then came down one weekend we brought the pine and when he left on sunday he took them home to finish sand and paint. The pictures attached are the finish results.

Gunny, This is a nice project. You helped you son save some money (if he is anything like mine are I am sure he needed it. They both seem to enjoy spending money. But they get that from their mother.) And you got him involved in the project as well.

Very nicely done.

Very nice job gunny. Looks like you saved some cash to spend on more woodworking toys?

Great job, they look really nice, and were a whole lot less expansive than those boutique places change…
