It was a long day. I am very tired. I am showing an older bench project. I don’t think I’ve ever featured it before. I don’t have any “in progress” pictures. This was the first corner bench Cathy and I built. This bench was made from a headboard. I still have the footboard in my stash. However the footboard has a small wooden piece that runs horizontally across the bottom with only a large spindle above it. Cathy and I tried to make a bench out of it, but we couldn’t figure it out. Perhaps I can part it out to make some of these spindle candlesticks and more. The posts look just like the ones on this headboard.

We screwed about 6-7 screws in the top (back) part of this. It has a 2×4 that runs across the front to connect the two posts. We used a random (extra) leg in the back. We used a piece of curbed 1/2 inch plywood for the seat. It’s probably one of my favorite benches.
It’s day 2 of our yard sale. Thursday was okay, not a lot of traffic. The weather was perfect! I would much rather have been building, or cleaning (gutting) the garage. Donna (Funky Junk Interior) says there are 2 ways to clean. “Shuffle” (which I usually do) and “gut” which I must do as soon as I can get to it.
I hope you have a great (productive) weekend filled with wonderful Spring weather!
