This bench was made out of a baby bed.
Please pardon the mess in the background. My friend Cathy and I made this bench last year in her garage in the dead of winter. Although her garage looks like a total wreck, mine currently wins the prize of messiest garage!
This was one of our first benches. In the beginning it took us several days to build a bench, now it takes us just a few hours. The construction on this is pretty simple. If we were to build this bench today we would build the legs into the box, instead of placing them inside the box.
We used some planks of wood for the seat that we found at the curb. You can see where we used wood putty to fill the holes in the crib end and some dings on the seat.
I just threw this picture in for fun! How many benches can you find?
