DIY Sunday – 1940s Dressing Table and Bench

dressing table and bench

Text from the plans: Only ln the more expensive furniture stores could you find the equal of this distinctive modern dressing table and bench. Its appeal is based upon a. well-proportioned and simple exterior and the careful selection at wood for grain and color. A light wood such as birch, maple, or blond walnut in suitable.

Note that the drawer pulls and door handle are eliminated. This function is taken over by the beveled lower edges of the drawer fronts and the left. edge ot the dour. The groove thus formed plays an important part in producing a pattern on an otherwise severely plain piece.

This furniture has a distinct forties feel to its design and would look great in any retro inspired home. The plans was originally published in Popular Science January 1941. Download the plans in pdf format by clicking the icon below – Ted
