A nice bench for young children with space for books on the side and under the seat. Some of the books are within sight and that invites you to read.

Cozy seating area with bookcase

This comes from the site of Karwei at the DIY projects. There are the exact measurements. There is no construction drawing, so it is a bit of a puzzle how everything should be put together. You place the seat in the uprights according to these dimensions. I would do that differently, I would make the seating board slightly larger so that it falls on the uprights. That is firmer. The board of 30.0x38.0 then becomes 31.8x39.8. Then you can place it on it, making the seat a bit higher. (That has not been done in these photos, which is an improvement that I recommend, but so have not tried it yet)

The dimensions of the project

Back plate 75.0x55.0 Seat height 30.0 cm.Depth of the cabinet 34.0 cm
