With its clean, simple lines, this occasional bench will make a stylish addition to your dining room. It is easy to build and goes well with all types of decor, from modern to more traditional: an elegant way to provide extra seating at your table.
The bench measures 16" x 60" x 19" and is made using solid maple boards and maple-finish plywood. It is assembled almost entirely from wood biscuits, which produces invisible joints. We recommend that you stain it to fully appreciate the maple wood texture.
