No-Cut Plan: Bench

Here are the plans for the Chief’s Shop Simple Woodworking No-Cut Bench.

Not cuts are required – just pick up (11) 1 x 3 x 2s and (11) 1 x 4 x 2s (assuming all the lumber you purchase is the same length and the ends are square). You’ll only need a drill/driver, Kreg Pocket Hole Jig, and a couple of clamps (face clamp and right-angle clamp if you have them).

You can certainly make this by cutting down longer 1 x 3s – 11 parts at 24″ long and 11 parts at 48″ long.

Give it a try and let me know what you thing –

Make some sawdust!

  1. I do not understand your measurements. I get the 2 ft and 4 ft lengths, just what are the widths of the boards?? Are these 1×4’s and 1×2’s in those lengths? Great looking bench, just need help reading your plan.

    • Mary: Thanks for your question! They are all 1 x 3s, so they are 2 1/2″ wide. The list of Lumber you need for this project is located at the top right section of the the first page of the pdf.

  2. I’m gonna have to scale this down and make some for some little kids and their dolls. I love it !!
