Free plans to build a sturdy, simple bench that can be used for seating or as an accent table or nightstand.
I built this bench several years ago, and we use it daily - it is still just as strong and sturdy as ever. It's lightweight and easy to move, the cross bracing gives it a little detailing to make it interesting. We've had this bench indoors and out, it's a strong, sturdy bench that has lasted many years with high use.
This is a great project to burn up scrap wood.
