I just made this bench 3 days ago, Dec. 22nd 2012. It’s made entirely out of Cyprus so I don’t have to finish it in any way and the termites won’t touch it.
It’s a 34” x 3’ (x 2” thick) bench that I made to fit over top of my small deep freeze. It’s the only table in the back room so it was either that or ruin my freezer top eventually with setting things on it to work with ha ha.
It’s 34” tall and folds up to the wall behind the freezer for easy access to the freezer. I installed two large hinges in the back to hold the weight and gold, heavy duty hinges on the legs for folding. There is also a gate latch on the wall and mounted to the side of the bench so when it folds up it immediately latches in the wall behind it.
I made small 2” x 3/4” side rails to route out for a nice side finish on the frame. I didn’t do much sanding or finishing on this piece as it’s a work bench mostly and I didn’t see much need in it if that’s all it was for ha ha.
In the end it’s very nice and very convenient to have in the back room. I am building another one out of the left overs for my front car port, same concept.
