Male: The Castinos needed place to lounge in their new reading area. That wraparound step they had was more of a nuisance so we extended it out and created a raised reading area complete with a custom made bench. I’ve already cut the pieces so now we can put it all together. Let’s see what I’ve made here are two side pieces and then what we’re going to do is take our strips of pine, place them pretty much one right after the next right on the top so that really forms the structure of the bench. Nice, so what do you think?
Male: I love it.
Male: So you need peace, it’s a little titer totter right now but once we put a finished coat on here, put some legs on here, a nice soft little cushion on the top, it’s going to look good. Now I’m finishing it off with a clear coat and some modern legs. All I did was purchase stocked table legs. Once I add them to the bench, I can then put the cushion on and we can put it in the room. Flip that over.
Female: Perfect. My god this is so cool.
Male: It is unbelievable and we just put in acrylic and this on the front of it and these dark wooden legs like this whole area has now separated the room with this extra level and now this is a total reading area for your son, for you guys to hang out with your son.
