Some friends of mine bought a house and as a housewarming present I told them I’d build a custom piece of furniture. They asked for a bench to fit an alcove in their house, but when I went over to measure the size came out to 72” x 36”. So this bench became a day bed ;-)

The husband helped me in my shop while I built it and his wife made the cushion and the pillows. This thing was so big I couldn’t transport it from my shop, so we dry assembled in my shop, loaded it up in the Jeep, and assembled it over there.

Nothing super fancy in this project, just straightforward clean design with a result that fits perfectly in their house.

What a wonderful gift! They will cherish and use this everyday and think of you and your generosity!
