Modern Wood and Metal Kitchen Dining Bench


This week we finally added a matching maple bench to our kitchen dining set. This bench is made from solid maple and custom made minimal metal 1×2 tubing legs.

The bench has a large hidden storage area for kids coloring books, crayons, place mats or anything else that you need close to a table. The large slab top has soft close hinges to prevent little fingers from getting smashed when the bench top is closed.

The box section of the bench is assembled with miters and strengthened with maple dovetail splines that add a ton of strength and are very decorative.

  1. Fantastic job Tyler. your family will enjoy that for a long time.

    BTW thanks again for your insights on Ridgid. I am really loving there tools. As my power tools grow in number, Ridgid will be my default in most cases. I simply cannot beat the quality to price ratio. Add to that the LSA that is one most of their tools, and they are unmatched in overall value. With the total loss of Craftsman up here in Canada, I needed a reliable quality brand to build upon and for me it is Ridgid. Not going to pain my shop orange, but it will have plenty of highlights.
