Storage Bench plansFree Storage Bench plans - I was inspired by some benches I had seen but wanted to create something that would catch the eye. I was looking for a modern design, and my instructor helped me formulate my thoughts into a solid design. I then started looking at wood types and I came across two, wenge and maple, and thought they would complement the design and make it look exceptional. The construction of the project was fairly simple. I had to make my frames and panels (the panels were veneered), the arms and feet, and of course I had to come up with a way to save material and time while being incredibly accurate on the top. To make the top, my instructor came up with the idea to glue up strips of wenge and maple and then cut the panels on a diagonal. Then I took those strips and laid them out vertically and alternated the pattern so that we received the intended design.
