Kids reading bench with cushions and book storage. Let's get started for this project. I use two sheets of maple veneer three-quarter inch pure bond plywood that I picked up at home depot. The bench is going to be 18 inches deep and I rip the two sheets of plywood into four 18 inch wide panels. Here's a quick cut list for the bench I made you can easily adjust this for whatever size you need.
I use my dado stack, so I would have cleaner cuts, but you could also use a jigsaw if you don't have a dado stack. I had to chisel out what the dado blade couldn't reach, but this was fairly easy and only took a few minutes. Here I added pocket holes to the center support and all of these will be hidden on the backside of the bench.
Everything was cut to size now and I could begin assembling the to seat back panels. I just use glue and a few brad nails here. At this point, I had not decided on the overall length of the bench, so here I am laying out the seat backs and using the foam I ordered for a reference. I used the seat backs as a template to trace the center supports, and I cut these off camera on my band saw. These will get attached later. There is a center support that runs the length of this bench, and here you see me laying out the dados for the half-laps that connect the two dividers.
