Do you have plans available for this great looking bench design???

Jim, I am sorry but I do not.... I just took some basic dimensions and basically did it off the cuff. I would recommend and easier design for the corner. Bring the back 90 degrees on one of the benches and mate the two square. I like the 45's but it is not worth the effort. I built the four ends first (remember the middle pieces are longer from the angle) they are all mortise and tennoned. I then cut the apron pieces to length added the angles and attached them to the frame, M&T on the straight side and dowels on the curve. Glue up and size your bench top. make the back panels, again M&T with bead board panels (basically a sideways cabinet door). I made my own beadboard by milling 1/2 stock and using a molder in my table saw. The only screws in this project are holding the bench top and 3 on the back panel at the angle. The angle at the back is a little tricky since it is a compund miter and reuires three cuts (acurate cuts) for it all to mate up.
Hope this helps.

I would gladly answer an questions you might have, if that will help.
