Two Ways to Build a Mudroom Built-In

As I wrote in my last article we are currently looking at making our laundry into a mudroom. I included some drawing from my plans for the mudroom in the last article, but I am still looking around at other options, and seeing what other people have done for their mudrooms.

Fine Homebuilding and Fine Woodworking┬ádid a “build off” from two of their contributors to build a mudroom bench. The results of both are pretty impressive, and go beyond what I am able to do and am planning to do for our mudroom bench.

It was interesting to see the different approaches that the two contributors had. One of the contributors was a house builder and the other was a furniture and cabinet builder. Their different building techniques and plans for the mudroom benches reflected their varied experiences and skill sets.

Below is the introductory video for the series:

You can read more about the project, check out detailed videos and download the plans over on the Fine Homebuilding web-site.

Update: From what I can tell all the links and plans for the built-in mudroom benches are only available to paid subscribers to Fine Home Building.
