Front Porch benches progress

April 22, 2009 By: jststeve Category: Uncategorized No Comments →

My friend Ed and I have been busy over the winter months. He helped me plan out some new storage benches for the front porch. We have been cutting, planing, glueing, sanding, and now are starting assembly! Here are some initial pictures of the progress. Next step is to stain and then install :-) Order in the front porch? Say it isn’t so.

We have used 3/4 birch plywood and glued a 1/4 solid birch strip to face the ply. I plan to stain it a bit darker but still show the grain and we have some wicker baskets that will store things. These pictures are of the two benches. Once they are installed we are going to build a taller unit that will contain large and small baskets.
