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.
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.
You need two panels cut to 55 inches long, one at 53 and a half by 14 inches two at 18 by 18, 6 at 18 by 14 and two at 18 by 4 - and Here I am just measuring out and breaking down the sheets of plywood. Since my jig was already set to 18 inches, I use it to also crosscut the seat back panels. Here I used my crosscut sled to cut down all the remaining pieces. Over on my table saw. I set my blade to 37 degrees to make the beveled cuts on the two seat back panels.
