Build a Curvy Bench


Free Plans to Build a Curvy Bench

Previously, I posted plans for the Curvy Table… Today, I’m sharing the free plans to build a Curvy Bench to match. The materials listed are for one bench, so if more than one bench is being built, adjust the lumber and cut lists accordingly! Stay tuned for the plans to build the matching armchair which will complete the collection!
