Here are two country kitchen benches I just built. Lids up offer great storage. On the last photo you can see the two country kitchen credenzas I recently built and posted on LJ. They were fun to build and they are quite handy. I used glued-up birch and the finish is three coats of wipe-on poly (I really like that stuff).

See all construction details and photos from this page of my blog.

Thanks for looking.

Best,

Serge

5 board benches are the most utilitarian and you’ve done a fine job on these especially with the hidden compartment.

Excellent idea with the storage. One can never have enough storage in the house.

Nice design and nicely done. The storage would be especially handy on kitchen benches – place mats and table clothes right there ready to use. I would not mind one of these for my mud room either – stocked with a few towels for wet dog days.

Thanks, guys.

@Roger: You rememdered me that we had such piano bench at home when I was a kid. My father built it. Tons of partitions were stored in that bench! Thanks for the reminder.

Best,

Serge

Nice work Serge, looks like a wonderful place to eat.
And then you can hide food for later… Smiles.

Thanks, guys.

@Mads, I never thought about hiding food for later. Good idea (think cookies!)

@DiggerJack. Since my house is quite high, I do have enough room to stack my projects.

@MonteCristo. You’re right, the set is great in my limited space.

Best,

Serge
