Custom Benches for Bean Table...

The Bean Table was such a big hit that matching benches were quickly requested to go along with it. Well sort of matching..everything except the color....  Whats a Grandpa to do? How could I refuse?

These benches were created using some local harvested pine milled by my favorite family lumber mill.  They measure in at 20 inches wide and 14 inches tall.  Extra storage was requested and provided in the top of the benches.

And another use for the bean table... How darling is this?  





This table and new benches are mommy tested and approved.


Ahhh..hidden storage for my dolls....


different angle

First coat of paint
Primer is on...



All sharp edges on these benches have been rounded over
and are now ready for some fine sanding...then primer....then the paint.
Wait till you see the color she picked for this.

Storage space was requested in the top of these benches...Looks like I left some sawdust for her to use in her sensory table..


Piano hinge has been installed on top of bench and felt pads placed on the front corners
to protect little fingers from being smashed.

A little corner detail added to match the table.
Glue up in progress.


Cut to fit and now ready for glue up

Dry fitted..... looking not too bad.
These benches will go for use with this "Bean Table"



Stay tuned for more updates soon......:-) ****************************************************************
