Walnut Blanket Storage Bench

Our bedroom was in need of some color and utility, so we brainstormed on some designs for a blanket storage chest and bench combo. The design is a Brentmore Original™ that is characteristically over-engineered. The body is quite sturdy, consisting of solid and ply walnut with a maple trim piece on the front side of the bench to add a little contrast. The lid supports are gas shocks capable of 100N apiece – well over what’s necessary to hold the top on place.
