Shaker Bench Review

"You know it is kinda funny.  I own a woodworking business.  We build millions of dollars worth of cabinetry, millwork, stairways……every year.  When we finish a project, I don’t really have much interest in looking back on this work.  If it is done right, the customer is happy, and I got paid, then I am happy and we just move on.  But having this bench  in my personal hobby shop is different.  I really don’t want to take my eyes off it.  In the end, this bench inspires.  I think that is the highest compliment I can give.  It’s like a musician listening to another musician’s work and saying WOW. "

-T. Remster, owner of the Benchcrafted Prototype Shaker Bench

If you'd like to build our Shaker bench, which Chris Schwarz stamps with his seal of approval, visit our website.


  1. I plan to make that bench some day. So handsome.

  2. I have the plans and now that the buyer showed up for my other bench, I will order the hardware. I had the good fortune to see the actual bench at WIA. For me, it will recharge my passion to work wood, and I am looking forward to it.
