I purchased a plan that had the make 5 of them and then pay us a royalty. But what is strange is their bench is different from the original made in the late 1800’s. So I’m making mine like the original version and not using their plans.

What was even stranger the picture on the cover of the plans was like the original and the detail plans on the inside didn’t match the picture on the outside. I called them and their response if you don’t want the plan then send it back.

It looks like the changes were to track who made the bench from their plans. Some of them were real dumb.
