I made this nook for my niece. They had one whe she was little and she wanted one.
She found a picture online and we went from there. It has plenty of storage in both the benches and the table is not huge so it fits perfect in her kitchen and for their small family.

The legs on the table were fun to make. I used the table saw to hog out the curves for them which was a first and worked nicely but would have been quicker with a dado blade. I think this way made a better cut than a jigsaw would on material this thick.
It was also firs time making this type of panels which I also used the table saw to make.
Hope y’all like it.
Have fun lumberjocking

Wow that has some very nice features on the seats (I like the panels) and on the table (curved legs). A very nice set.

Booths are on my “to do” list, so I was interested to see yours. I had not considered using panels. I’ll have to consider it. I’ve got a lot of wide cherry so was thinking of solid bench backs.

Your booth looks very nice. I would certainly be proud if I had made it.
