Great for a kitchen or breakfast nook!
Needing extra storage and seating in your kitchen or breakfast nook? See how I built this multipurpose bench...
– 2×4 calculated length, width, and height – ¼ MDF board for sides – ¾ MDF board calculated for sitting area – Piano hinges – 4 Casters (optional) – 3” construction screws – Wood glue
Cut 2×4’s to desired size for length, height, and depth using miter saw.
Build bottom frame by joining length boards to depth boards using 3” construction screws.
Attach vertical supports to bottom frame by using Kreg pocket hole jig.
Build top frame in same manner as bottom frame.
Connect top frame to vertical supports using Kreg pocket hole jig. We messed up, and put casters on too soon as pictured . It is best to do the casters later.
Once you have cut ¼ MDF board to proper dimensions for face board, side boards, and back board, attach MDF to frame with wood glue and clamps.
