The hinged seat of this hall bench lifts for access to a lower compartment which holds blankets, umbrellas and mittens. The upper compartment provides a place for your phone and keys. For a nostalgic nod to the past, the tilt down door could keep the phone book out of sight. Wait... do they still print phone books?!? The bench provides a comfortable place to sit while talking to friends on the phone or at the very least, allow you to put on your boots or shoes. This woodworking plan provides full size illustrations, exploded view diagrams and instructions to make the projects shown.
