We recently bought a dining room table and 4 chairs from Craigslist for our dining room. Once we got it home we realized that 4 chairs was definitely not enough for this table: it’s huge!!! So, we decided the best solution was to create a bench for one side of the table. It would help fill the space and would let us seat a lot of people for dinner parties!
My husband claimed he was good at wood working and could easily make a bench. I was only slightly skeptical…but, he pulled it off and our bench is AMAZING.
We decided that we wanted to design our bench to match our dining table. Both the dining table & the bench have 45 degree chanfer corners.
