Lilleby bench

Materials: Lilleby trestle, 2×6, drill

My wife and I added an Utby bar underframe and put a slate slab on top to make an island in our kitchen. I decided to build some benches so we can also use the island as a breakfast table.

1) Sand the paint off the Lilleby pieces
2) Assemble the Lilleby
3) Cut 2×6 lumber to the width of the Lilleby
4) Screw the 2×6 to the Lilleby with deck screws
4) Paint to whatever colour you want
