Mortise and tenon joinery, double tapered legs, and a comfortable cushioned seat combine to make this an elegant addition to your home.
This bench offers a pleasing and comfortable place to sit in the bedroom. With gracefully tapered legs and rock-solid traditional joinery, it is sure to add beauty to any room setting, as well as adding new skills to your woodworking repertoire. In designing this bench, we were aiming to use as few mechanical fasteners as possible. To that end, we chose mortise and tenon joinery for much of the project. Each end of the bench has three rails held securely between the tapered legs. A pair of long upper stretchers and a beefy lower stretcher connect the end assemblies together. While we designed this bench with the bedroom in mind, its fine features would look right at home in an entryway or mudroom, as well.

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.
