Two-Tier Storage Bench
This bench takes storage and seating to a new level and at the same time offers a convenient place to sit while jotting down a note.
This bench is inspired by a traditional telephone stand with a seat on one side and a handy raised cabinet on the other. Although it might not get much use as a telephone stand these days, you’ll find it’s a great bench with practical storage built in. The case is built from plywood with tongue and dado joinery, so it goes together quickly from the start. The face frame is assembled with pocket screws that add to the fast build. Then you can add the details, like the shop-made molding and stylish pre-made bun feet.

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.
