This is a bench seat to go along with the captains bed I built for my youngest daughter. It has a ton of drawer space, and is built into a former closet. Surprisingly, she decided the need for grown up space, outweighed the need for closet space. She painted the bush/tree and cut out birds from music sheets, representing two of her favorite hobbies.
The finish is paint, the face frames and drawer fronts are poplar, and the drawers are plywood.
The fifth pic shows how I clamp pocket screw joints. The corner brace keeps it square, the vise grip clamp keeps it flush, and the clamps draw the joint tight. This method makes consistently tight joints for me.
The sixth pic is a bit repetitive, but I wanted to show off my shop buddy Maizey
