Saw this on project on The Woodsmith Shop TV and just had to make one. Classic old design, added the slot for easy picking up. Made with red oak, painted flat black and top stained with mahagony Minwax gel stain. Love this old style of bench. This one is 38” long, the plan calls for 48”. Make the length whatever your space requires. The mortise and tenons on this are “dead on”and made on a table saw, no drilling required. The plans are free on their web site, check it out.
I plan to use this as a bench while putting my boots on. The wife likes it as a table for her plants. Not sure yet who will win (yeah right, I guess it’s hers)!
