Hi All
I just completed this modified Deacon’s bench. Its made from White Oak, all of the stiles and rails are a solid 1” and the panels are a full 1/2”. I thought if I was going to sit on it to remove my shoes it had better be sturdy.:)

Very nice bench/chest. This will be a great heirloom no doubt. You wouldn’t happen to have any dimensioned shop drawings would ya? I would love to build something like this for my sons room, it would make a great toy box.

Thanks everyone for the generous comments. Bob2 it is just a Minwax Golden Oak stain and 5 coats of water-based varathane. Mark I do have the plans and I’ll get that information as soon as I find them :) It came from one of the magazines that I subscribe to.

Hi Bruce,

You did a good job on this bench. The frame and panel construction has straight-forward lines to it and it is solidly built. Nice finish as well.

Thanks for the post.

Bruce, Thank you, I would appreciate any measurements, drawings you might have of it. This definitely has to be one of my upcoming projects… Nice choice on the golden oak stain… I use that for almost everything… :-)
