Fancy Hall Tree Bench

Submitted by blmalloy on Thu, 12/05/2013 - 12:08

I saw the plans for this and had to have it! My husband had it assembled pretty easily (we've built several dining tables/benches, but this was our first piece that went out of that box, lol) and the whole project took maybe a day or two including staining. We left of the end pieces just because we were trying to get it done quickly for Thanksgiving; we intended to add them on later, but I kind of like it open. Everyone who has seen it loves it!

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
$75
Estimated Time Investment
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Type of Wood
Plywood, pine
Finish Used
Rustoleum Ultimate in Early American with two coats of poly. If I had to do it again, I would stain the pieces used for the bench before they were assembled; staining inside those cubes was a bit difficult.
Recommended Skill Level

Your hall tree looks really good! (Early American is my favorite stain color!)
