I built this a while back…I was asked to make a kids bench and so I went by what the person gave me and made this bench. She wanted storage underneath, small enough to fit into a certain spot, side and back rails, and a stain to match what she had in her hallway already. I made this custom to what she wanted and she seemed happy, a day later I get a call that it’s too big and deep and wanted to try to sell it. I immediately took it back and sold it the same night to someone else. I’m curious on opinions if anyone has ever returned a project back to you?
Knowing what I was up against with this, and who it was for, I made the joinery with pocket hole and screw joinery instead of spending more time on mortise and tenon (and I’m happy I did). It was too cold in the shop to stain, so I did it inside and mixed up some colors to custom match.
