Almost ready to install. I finished the top cabinet today, and the bench last week. I will still put a small decorative detail cut into the through-tenons sticking out, and fix a coupla things and add a few more details. Bench has 84 parts plus tile, weighs over a hundred pounds, top cabinet has 20 parts and weighs about 70 pounds (!!!!) Yes, a bit overbuilt. Coat hooks will go below the cubby holes. Blue and white tile matches other accents in the room. I’ll be sitting on this every day to watch the dogs eat. I believe I have several hundred hours in this project. I’m making drawings of both units. I might make plans available if there is any interest. I would change a few details, some joinery, blah blah. It could easily be modified (stretched wider? a bit deeper seat?) For me, it had to fit in one particular spot. I’ll post pics after the installation. Enjoy!
