no previous part Part 1 of Bench series Part 2: Tenon's and first dry fit »

This is going to be a small display bench to fill in a small wall between the dining room and living room. Not really designed to seat a person, more for display items (ie. my wife’s dolls or bears, something along that line). I drew up the plan in Sketchup, it’s going to be about 34” in height floor to top rail, about 26” wide and 13” deep. The seat will be hinged and a small compartment will be framed in under the seat. Have no idea what is to be stored there, but I am sure something will find it’s way there.

I’ve modelled it after a deacon’s bench.

So far I have all the pieces cut to rough size and the mortises on the sides cut. Started cutting the tenon shoulders tonight before I called it quits.
