Storage Bench

This is the perfect bench for a number of places. The entryway, the foot of the bed or even under the TV would be a great place to have additional seating and hidden storage. The half lap construction, not only looks great but is a good solid place to take a seat or store whatever you need to get out of sight. Drawer slides help the seat glide effortlessly across the top of the bench.
