DIY Storage Bench Project Plan
The leg assemblies are assembled with Rockler Beadlock floating tenons. The leg assemblies are also connected to the storage box with Beadlock floating joinery. The mortises for these tenons are easy to form with the Rockler Beadlock Pro Jig.
The storage box lid is hinged and supported by a Lid-Stay Torsion Hinge Lid Support . Similar to hinges in laptop computers, these heavy-duty cast-zinc hinges allow virtually any size lid to open smoothly, hold its position (when opened to 90 degrees, beyond that the lid will swing open), and then easily close.
This project was designed and built by Chelsea and Logan from Making Manzanitas. You can find more of their work at:
