We had a real crummy window seat in our kitchen – just barely enough room to sit. So I ripped it out and rebuilt one with enough seating area, storage for kids hats/gloves, etc, and even a kickspace heater to warm up the area. Much better that the electric heat that was there when we moved in. Tolerances were very tight, but I managed to fit everything in.
I built the inner frame out of 2×2 poplar, and sheathed it with red oak. I built 3 boxes from oak plywood, which are removable when the top is removed, so there’s access to the heater.
