How to Build a Mudroom Storage Bench


Make your space store more with this cabinet-based
unit. Off-the-shelf stock cabinets anchor this piece — but you need to build a few
elements to pull it all together: a cap, a shelf, and a bench. The bench and shelf are built the exact same
way, using pieces with slightly different dimensions. Drill pilot holes in the front
piece and the rails, then glue and screw them together. Attach the back, and then the top,
and they’re ready to install. The cap is a clever combo of crown moulding
corners, and crown molding lengths, that you cut to fit as you work your way around the
cap’s three sides. Glue and nail the pieces in place, and simply set it on top of the
towers to tie them together. A hardworking system that’s not hard to make.
