Making a Breakfast Nook ( With Storage)!

Making a Breakfast Nook ( With Storage)!

In this video I build a simple breakfast nook and kitchen table out of 2×4, plywood, and pine 1×4 from Home Depot. This piece was for a client who chose to finish (stain) the wood on their own. Got questions? Leave them in the comments!

    It was very nice. I was a little surprised you didnโ€™t put the hinges on the inside.

  2. srividya gurumurthy on March 29, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    Do you take orders for this one? and if yes, how much and where are you located?

  3. ED Colby on March 29, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    the scratching sound makes this impossible to watch

    I clicked download plans and it won’t allow me to. How can I get these plans?

  7. Happy Home Crafts on March 29, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    Turned out really nice, very cool =)

  9. carroll stanley on March 29, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    just curious on the trim I thought i heard you say it was 1×4 kinda looks like 1×3 and I didnt see it on the cut list

  10. 3sidesofeve on March 29, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    Table too high for the height of the bench

  11. Excellence In Lawn Care LLC on March 29, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    What was that pin nailer that you used?

  12. Reefphreak on March 29, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    Iโ€™m currently trying to build this as we speak. The problem Iโ€™m having with it right now is your video doesnโ€™t exactly match the visual plans. The visual plans make no mention of the cutouts for the storage nor the supports you have inside the frame for these cutouts. The visual plans also appear to have 13โ€ horizontal braces but make no mention of the vertical supports in the middle of the frame that you added when putting on the plywood.

  13. Mo McCarthy on March 29, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    the table is exactly what i’m needing. I have had a banquet seating built. Thank you so much. Mo xx

  14. Lucid8 Colorado on March 29, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    On the support column , 46 degree table saw rips for tighter miter edge, packaging tape seems to be best option.

  15. Broughton Kemp on March 29, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    Awesome! Thanks for the channel.

  16. Gaz Palmer on March 29, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    Great simple design, that I have been looking for- thanks!

  17. Michael Ziegler on March 29, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    I juat got done building my bench based on this videos design this last weekend. I built mine to wrap around my dining room though (two 72 inch sections connected by a 40 inch section). Hopefully I’ll be able to start the table this weekend.

  18. Samantha Good Witch Candle Co. on March 29, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    This is perfect ! My husband and I have been searching for this exact style banquet for our kitchen. Is there a website I can order a build like this ?

  19. Scott Diebold,Sr. on March 29, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    I built frame trying to cut in tops is storage bins QUESTION what is measurements of template for cut in ? Please

  20. Ron on March 29, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    Good job! Shop is cool af too

  21. Jordan Campbell on March 29, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    How did you โ€œwrapโ€ it around the baseboards on the back? Or have that baseboards been cut?

  22. Pixel Smash on March 29, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    Nice but too expensive to do it.

  23. Michael Mach on March 29, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Thanx for sharing. Really good info. Will it work to only make the holes half thru the table if the table is 1.5 inches thick ???

  24. Nancy Guy on March 29, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    What did this project cost โ€ฆmaterials and final finished?

  25. Katy Getsie on March 29, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    I’d love to make a similar bench, but to keep the look minimal I’d like to not trim it out and just have the plywood on the outside. Do you think glue and screws from the inside would be sufficient to hold the plywood, or would you fasten in some other way?

  26. Frank Coles on March 29, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    The way you did the doors was a bit of a revelation, thanks!

  27. 100%truth on March 29, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    The stain looks blotchy as fck…..Did you not tell them to use a pre stain sealer before staining? Or you should have recommended a hardwood plywood or veneer. Just my 2 cents Mr. Make Everything

  28. pkoerner6 on March 29, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    What were the dimensions for the pedestal for the table?

  29. For Real on March 29, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    Excellent, thanks!

  30. John Tucker on March 29, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    What state are u in?

  31. Sigma BF2 on March 29, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Well done, I learned a lot. Thanks

  32. Happy Heathens on March 29, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    2 questions. What was the hammer trick you used on the corners of the table pillar? And what would be your best recommendation for a way to weigh this table down so that it won’t tip over onto a particularly rambunctious three-year-old?

  33. shannon mitchell on March 29, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    I wish you weren’t so far! I’d have you make one for me! I don’t have the space to make it

    I made a banquette and pedestal table following your design but added a slight slope to the seat and a backrest. Here is the video:

    Thanks for sharing your video. I really appreciate the clear and concise directions and production quality of the video.

  36. Tamara Tamrot on March 29, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    I use Woodglut plans for all my joinery. Google and try it out.

  37. Hammond Miers on March 29, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    I’m sure you will find good solutions for all your ideas on the Stodoys website.

  38. Jaleel Johnson on March 29, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Amazing work

  39. Bill Goodman on March 29, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    I may be doing something just like this. Perfect. Great job.

  40. Pat Lussenhop on March 29, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    I have some 1/4" red oak paneling, think that is thick enough to use for the sides (not the bench, i’m going 3/4" for that too)?

  41. Tony InAngus on March 29, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Nice build and great result but by far the most impressive thing was the ease with which you hop up on your mahoosive table and then work on it as though itโ€™s the floor ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป. First time Iโ€™ve seen that on YT. Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿป

    Hi Chris…Can you tell me what would be a good replacement for the 2 x 4’s since my Home Depot no longer carries the Burrill brand. Thanks so much! Frank

  44. Lee Fuller on March 29, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Good grief, your table saw table , no Lol, is bigger than my entire kitchen and dining room foot print. ( Jealous, Lol)
    My son has designed something quite similar for my dining room which leaves a nice clean open feel to the dining room and kitchen. In order to achieve this, I have to totally remove a wall shelf unit from the previous owner. In place of the Open shelving, I will make a wall sized pantry.
    Your video is very well lit, good audio, good material. My smaller dining room will become my temporary workshop. I really liked the storage inside the seats. This is A huge benefit .. my current dining room table will become the seat tops.
    You have done a remarkable job here. Not only have I learned a few things with pin nailing , I can get a good sense how my own table and seats will look when completed. Well Done ,,

  45. Brandy Hawking on March 29, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    You can use Woodglut and plans. The best plans and very detailed instructions. You can learn a lot from them and do it yourself.

  46. Kelz Bee on March 29, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Aha! I love your work ‘island’… And how ya clean it lol
