This bench is the perfect project to practice a handful of essential woodworking skills. While it may be simple-looking, the details of this project give it a bit more personality and intricacy than first glance may suggest.

To construct this project, you’ll learn how to undercut the bench top with a chamfer to create a more delicate appearance, create 10° splayed legs with your table saw, and shape the legs with a little help from a band saw. All joinery will be done with a biscuit joiner, but you’ll see that the application is a little more unique than usual.

This plan is delivered as a 4-page Downloadable PDF, which you can view and/or print.
