A nice bench for young children with space for books on the side and under the seat. Some of the books are within sight and that invites you to read.

Cosy seating area with bookcase

This comes from the Karwei site under the DIY projects. The exact dimensions are there. There are no construction drawings, so it is a bit of a puzzle as to how everything should be put together.

You place the seat board in the uprights according to these dimensions. I would do that differently myself, I would make the seat board slightly larger so that it falls on the uprights. That's sturdier. The 30.0x38.0 plank then becomes 31.8x39.8. Then you can place it on top, which will make the seat a little higher. (That has not been done in these photos, that is an improvement that I recommend, but have not yet tried)

The dimensions of the project

Back plate 75 ,0x55.0
Height of seat 30.0 cm
Depth of the cabinet 34.0 cm
