DIY Farmhouse Bench

So, last weekend we helped some friends of ours build a farmhouse table. This weekend we built them a farmhouse bench to go with it! When I was designing this bench I wanted it to be super cheap and easy but still look great and fitting to the farmhouse theme. So this is what I came up with, an incredibly easy to build farmhouse bench with tapered legs. Enjoy!

Straight leg would give it lighter and finer lines. Just saying. The seat is a very good idea and makes it look very smart.

PS: I might modify the bottom rung so that it doesn't look like a 2x4. Just to give it a bit of 'je ne sais quoi' if you know what I mean ;-)

Ohhhh yes, must make one of these. Have made a number of farm house benches of all kinds and this one is next. A bit massive but solid and steady. The mix of colors adds to it as well.

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…
