Introduction (scroll down for Plans)
This type of bench seat is generally put at the end of a bed, against a wall in a wide hall or in a house entrance area. This plan is purpose-made for the latter; simply somewhere to sit while putting on and taking off shoes, and I guess that it's a hint age is creeping up, to need such a bench for that reason.
This hall bench has a drop-in padded seat.
Below are the plans for the hall bench with
instructions as well as plenty of pictures on successive pages.
There is also a section on upholstery which explains how to make the padded seat.
