X Bench...with a small twist!

Submitted by RyAngel on Sun, 08/05/2012 - 19:04

We just absolutely LOVE this little bench! Ryan found Ana's site while searching woodworking tips and thought this bench would be a great replacement for the dinning room chairs that were falling apart. It was a great idea!

We have an Etsy shop and create and sell lots of stuff! We loved the bench so much that we thought why not put a few twists to it and see what our customers think. Well they LOVE it too! Of course everyone wants this color and that size, but the core design from "some great plans" is what does the trick!

The benches featured here just show you that the sky is the limit with mix and match options. From a slightly distressed blue X bench to a 100% solid Cedar bench to a reclaimed wood bench! We just love coming up with ways to tweak and add our own twist to the design.

Also...and most important...If you notice, there are NO screws showing on the outside of the bench!!! Yep..figured out how to hide the screws for the 'X' part of the bench. Just email me for the details ... (I get long winded).

Thank you Ana and everyone else who contributes here! Great site with awesome intentions....Can't wait to show you the coffee table we are working on!
