Powder Room Stool Results

I think the bench turned out really nice.  It was exceedingly easy to make (4 identical tapered legs, 4 identical cross beams, and a plywood seat).  View the makeup bench plans.

Things I Learned

  • It is important to mock-up furniture as much as possible before building.  I originally designed the seat to be a whopping 6 inches wider in both directions.  When I test fit the components together, I realized how unnecessarily large the seat would be.
  • I need to work on my upholstering.  I don’t really like the outcome, but I can try again.  I have plenty of excess fabric tucked in underneath and it is lightly stapled in.

The wood was leftover stock from my nightstand project.  So I only had to purchase the fabric and batting.
