Free Plans to Build a West Elm Inspired Boerum Dining Table and Benches


Free Plans to Build a West Elm Inspired Boerum Dining Table and Benches

Today’s plan is for a super-simple and stylish dining table with matching benches. There are several pieces in this collection. I’ve posted plans for the nightstand and will post plans for other pieces in this collection soon.

This table and bench set will cost next to nothing to build. The simplicity will allow it to blend into any decor. If constructed out of pressure treated lumber or cedar, the set could also be used outdoors!
