Simple but functional—that
was the Shaker way. This easy-to-build woodworking plan is a good
example of Shaker design in practice. Can be built with most any kind
of wood. We used pine (see photo) with all parts cut from an 8 ft.
length 1 x 12.
The only other materials needed are 10 woodscrews, 10 wood plugs,
and your choice of a finish. The Shaker Bench is 11-1/4" wide by 32"
long and 16-1/2" high. This project appeared in Woodsmith
