Entry Way Bench

So excited to share the plans for my entry way bench today! Such a fun piece to put in your Entry Way. The best part is you can build this fun piece for only $30 in lumber. You may be able to build it for less if you have some scraps lying around.

I have a SUPER small entry way in my house, but I couldn't deal with it being empty. This little bench fits perfectly in my little entry way space.

Step 1: Attach the (17 5/8") 2x4 leg to the (36") 2x4 leg by screwing the (12 3/8) 2x4 leg to them both using a Kreg Jig K4 Pocket Hole System on a 1 1/2" setting, with 2 1/2" pocket hole screws to attach along with wood glue. Repeat this step so that you have two legs.

Step 2: Attach the (12 3/8") bottom 2x4 braces to the existing legs using a Kreg Jig K4 Pocket Hole System on a 1 1/2" setting, with 2 1/2" pocket hole screws to attach along with wood glue. Do this step for both legs.

 

Step 3: Add (28") 1x6 legs to the bottom of the chair legs using 2" wood screws and wood glue. The 1x6 should hang off the edge of the legs by a 1/2". The 1st 1x6 should be flush with the back. Leave a 1/8" spacing between boards.

Step 4: Add (28") 1x6 legs to the top of the chair legs using 2" wood screws and wood glue. The 1x6 should hang off the edge of the legs by a 1/2". Leave a 1/8" spacing between boards.

 

Step 5: Add (16 1/4") 1x4 side braces under the 1x6 boards into the 2x4 legs on both sides using 2" wood screws and wood glue

Step 6: Add (26 5/8") 1x4 front brace under the 1x6 boards into the 2x4 legs  using 2" wood screws and wood glue. 

 and there it goes. Easy entry bench for any spall space in your home.
