As well Will, this is the kind of project that with a modicum of
skill/knowledge, you really don't need plans. Don't get frustrated if you
don't find plans or if you don't find what you thought plans *should* be -
just work off of the picture and go for it. Much more rewarding that way
sometimes. Sometimes you end up with the most interesting geometric
Right. I usually work such projects backwards. Find the storage
baskets first and design the bench around them. The baskets will look
better in a cubby that is a nice tight fit, rather than a sloppy fit
which is almost guaranteed buying the baskets after the fact...unless
you're planning on weaving your own baskets! It's simpler than finding
plans and having to modify them.
I built something similar for our kids using a bunch of cubbie drawers
from Hold Everything (SWMBO had to have the colors). We ordered the
drawers, then I story-sticked some plans together myself.
The sizes of the baskets should drive everything for you, as mentioned
in another post.
I am also looking for some plans similar to these. I want to build a
sitting bench for our living room by the window to hold toys for the
kids. I thought this would have a nice look to it and clean up some of
the toy clutter. Please post a link if you find any plans. Thanks
