Inspired by a picture in The Family Handyman Magazine, this bench will be handy in my shop as well as anywhere around the house for different tasks as climbing, painting, trimming, washing, reaching and of course, sitting. Made out of pine, it’s light and easy to carry. The dimensions are: 32’’ long X 12’’ deep X 15’’ high. One coat of shellac seals the wood.

All constructiion details and photos can be found on this page of my blog. Thanks for looking.
