Though it features elegant curves and a broad, solid oak seat, you'll be surprised at the simplicity of this bench's construction. To add an additional eye-catching design element, try replacing the seat with a natural-edge plank. If you chose the natural edged top, we've included the step-by-step process on how to machine your own.

great set of plans

I bought the plans to use as a first project in a woodworking class. I had never built anything before. The construction of the bench provided a good introduction to basic carpentry and even at my skill level, the end result (in red oak) was as beautiful as pictured in the plans. The only adjustment needed was in positioning the screws when the stretcher was attached so that they were not too near the edges of the stretcher. I couldn't have done it without some guidance, and it was challenging, but very rewarding. The design is truly lovely: the instructor told the class that it illustrated how good plans and good wood can yield a 'work of art'.
