My sister recently bought a used table on Craigslist but it only came with 3 chairs so she asked me to make her a bench for it. Her only request was that it be 17” tall and flat black to match the other chairs. I did some looking around on the web and found the traditional 5 board bench design. I also found Charles Neil’s video on YouTube and figured that I could build a variation on that design. It also gave me an excuse to try out the new bandsaw. It is 36” wide, 17” tall, and 11” wide. I painted it a flat black and gave it some light distressing. The top and sides have 4 coats of satin polyurethane and the rest of the bench has 3 coats.
