Way back in 1994, my wife and I built a new house. As a house warming gift, some friends gave us a 10’ church pew from a 100 year old church near Lincoln, Nebraska. Fast forward to 2003 when we moved out of that house and into a smaller fixer upper. We discovered we did not have any room large enough to put our beloved 10’ church pew. My oldest daughter purchased her first home 2004 and was in need of L shaped kitchen bench for her three boys. So I started drawing up some ideas on how to get a straight 10’ church pew into an L shaped bench. If you look closely, I made it into three stand along pieces. A small center bench and a left and right return. Cutting it half was the hardest! If this pew could talk it would some real stories. On the center bench, I did not want to mess up the compound miter, so I compromised by adding the peice of oak plywood for the back.
I have other pictures of the bench and wil post them once I find them.
