This was my attempt at the 'Build an Entryway Bench...' project. It was also my first Ana White build.
A few notes:
- I had to modify the length of the bench in order to fit the 12 x 16 inch wire baskets I bought off eBay. Basically, I added 5.25" to all the horizontal pieces.
- I used a jigsaw to the the half-oval cut-outs on the bottom pieces. I got this idea from a similar bench from the Pottery Barn website.
- I routed the front edge of the seat with a round-over bit.
- I also routed the inner edge of the top with a core box bit.
It was amazing how quickly this went with the right tools and a couple mornings. Thanks for checking it out!
