DIY Rustic X-Bench (Free Woodworking Plans)

on July 18, 2016

Over the past week or so I have been teasing a fun build on Snapchat and Instagram. Well, today is finally the day I get to share the big reveal! Even better, I’m also offering free woodworking plans, courtesy of Kreg and Build Something so that you can build your own! I created a fun, rustic entryway bench with room for storage and a trendy “X” design. Best part is, the entire project is made from 2×4’s and one 2×2. Bonus win, the wood for this project cost me right around $30! Not bad for a big and practical build!

How To Make A Rustic X-Bench

One of the most popular requests for projects are “stylish storage” options. While there are other plans on the web for X-benches or shoe storage. I wasn’t thrilled with any of the combinations I saw. So, naturally, I made my own!

If you can’t tell by some of my previous projects, I’ve been pretty much obsessed with the “X” design. I’ve found an easier way to find those tricky angles, and now that I’ver perfected it, you can be sure that you’ll be seeing them in a lot more projects.


Want to know my trick for finding the angles of your “X”? Check this out. For a project like this, which requires frames with “X” inlays, start by building the frame. Once that’s done, place your wood under the frame at an angle. When you are happy with your placement, use a pencil to draw a line. You can then place the wood on your miter saw and line up the blade with the line. Then, adjust the angle of the blade to find which one matches up!

Once your larger pieces are done, you can repeat the same process by dry fitting one piece inside the frame and then placing the second piece underneath and marking the angles with a pencil.

Other than the quick trick I just showed you, the use of my Kreg K5 Pocket Hole Jig and DAP Wood Filler were the real MVP’s of this project. Oh, and if you’re wondering what color stain I used, here’s a big shoutout to Evengrain Stain. Their Brunette stain color made this bench really come to life!Other than the quick trick I just showed you, the use of my Kreg K5 Pocket Hole Jig and DAP Wood Filler were the real MVP’s of this project.

    This looks very sturdy, would it support a heavy hutch (100+ lbs)? I can’t find a credenza the right dimensions :(.
