“Dovetail Braced Shaker Bench” Woodworking Plan

$5.00

This downloadable PDF set of woodworking plans will give you every measurement you need, from different views, to build this classically-inspired Shaker bench. And best of all, this bench can be built from three 4-foot stair treads! This project is simple, but will help any woodworker refine their joinery skills.

The bench design includes through-mortise & tenon joints and lap dovetail joints. The dovetailed braces offer great strength and stability to this charming bench.

Below you’ll find more details about these woodworking plans, along with the free tutorial video that goes along with these plans, photos, and a list of tools & products used to build it.
