The plans are great. This went together really fast. I am cheating a little here, it is not quite complete; I need to add the side blocks on top and my wife would like a another panel added to the front at work height level, just for looks. But the overall look won't be changed. I struggled some with finishing (I usually do). A couple spots have runs I didn't see. One will be covered by the front panel I'll add,but another needs sanding.
Just for fun I added a picture of the bench 3 years later. Its held up well to a lot of use and a lot of sitting out in the elements.
