This is a bench I made from QSWO. The design was based on a plan from Wood Magazine, but i needed to shrink the length and depth to fit a small space in our spare bathroom.

Very well done Mike.

What is under the cushion…how is it supported?

Nice build! Did you make the cushion as well?

Hi Tom. Yes, made that too. Wrapped the fabric over 2” (I think) foam and stapled to 1/2” plywood

Your aesthetic is really spot on, isn’t it?! Everything I’ve seen in your gallery is as perfect as can be. Great job on this!
