This is a bench to compliment a kitchen I did a while back. It’s one piece, solid hickory, and very very heavy. I was pretty proud because it fit with less than a 1/16th of extra space between the two sides. I was going for a mission style.

This looks like a beautiful complement to the kitchen. We really like how you did the doors with glass on the top and solid at the bottom. We think that’s more practical and less apt for the glass to get bumped. Thanks for sharing.

Nice project! I like the color and style, and especially like the corbels.
