Classic Entry Bench

Mortise and tenon joinery, a sculpted seat, and curved legs combine to make this bench an elegant addition to your home.

A bench is a great addition to an entryway or hall in your home. It also creates a comfortable place to cozy up by the fireplace or as a dressing seat at the foot of the bed. It’s really a versatile piece of furniture in any home. This bench will grace any area with style, too. The sculpted seat and wedged, through tenons add to the attractiveness of the bench. In addition, the splayed legs and curved rails and stretchers create eye-catching lines on the base. Even with the angles and contoured seat, the bench isn’t complicated to build. Plus, it’s all done with power tools. This eliminates a lot of involved handwork, so you can have this bench completed in short order. The only difficult part about building the bench is deciding where it will be located, because you’ll want to show off this impressive bench.
