Handmade furniture adds beauty and functionality to any home. Plus, a custom look is sure to impress friends and family.
This time of year, it’s convenient to have a bench next to the door of a mudroom or entryway for all that pulling on (or taking off) of winter boots, socks, hats and gloves.
And here’s the good news: you don’t have to be a master carpenter to build this simple, rustic bench! Just follow this step-by-step guide from Shanty to Chic based on the Providence Bench design by Ana White. It costs at little as $20-$50 and can be completed in one afternoon with the help of a handy Kreg Jig® tool (available at GNH)! A Kreg Jig® makes it easy for anyone, even a beginning DIYer, to create rock-solid wood projects and to make strong, long-lasting repairs.
