Skansen Bench

We love the free plans that Popular Woodworking offers online, especially this Swedish-inspired Skansen bench from their “I Can Do That” feature.

As editor Christopher Schwarz writes:

“This bench is from the Älvros Farmstead, a group of buildings from the 16th and 17th centuries that were moved to Skansen. I first spied this bench in the book “Making Swedish Country Furniture & Household Things” (Hartley & Marks). For this version I proportioned the parts so it could be built with dimensional pine – one 12′-long 2×12 and one 8′-long 2×8. Total cost: About $22.

At first glance, this might not look like an “I Can Do That” project, with its laminated top and wedged through-tenons in the seat. But I assure you, it can be built with basic tools.”

Check out the detailed plans behind the “I Can Do That: Skansen Bench” and pay a visit to the Schutte Lumber showroom this weekend.
