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.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
