What to do with Surplus Vintage Doors: Make a Bench/Pew & Coat RackFebruary 11th, 2015 in member junk
I had some leftover vintage doors that I rounded up creating a new booth space in a new antique mall and they were taking up too much room. So I had figure something out to get them gone! I've always wanted to make a church-style pew/bench. So I went after it by cutting up the doors. It took three doors to make this. The remaining pieces were used to make another creation that I'll post here on JMS soon.
This repurposed bench is super strong with lots of long screws and supports. The rails on top are solid oak hand rails that I took from a church that was being torn down. And bottle openers are too fun not to include! Measures 7 feet long and SUPER comfy!
