I think I might have mentioned that I liked the easy instructions I found for making this little Shaker style bench and that I wanted to have a go at it. I had it all finished a while ago (read: a year) but forgot to blog about it. Ha ha, don't you love my confused decorating here? I was just transitioning between Halloween and Thanksgiving so you get both!
Anyway, this is a really easy woodworking project that didn't require anything more than a drill, wood glue and screws. I had all the timber cut to size at Home Depot but you could do that yourself if you have wood lying around and a saw to cut it with. As it was, the guy at Home Depot totally stuffed up the measurements so I had to adjust the sizes on a couple of pieces after I started putting it together and realised it looked a bit odd. Oh, I also borrowed a jigsaw from a neighbour to cut the triangular notches in the legs.
This is where I found the instructions and I strongly urge you to have a go. It was a very quick project. It took longer to paint it!
