Add the Top Frame Frame the top of the bench using 1×4 poplar (Image 1). Use a miter saw or a circular saw to cut the wood to length. Attach the framing with wood glue and finish nails (Image 2). The purpose of the framing is to add strength to support the bench top and the weight of people sitting upon it. The side of the bench that will be against the wall will need an extra top frame piece to hold the piano hinge and bench top. Cut another 1×4 to the same dimension as the back piece and fasten it on top of the other with glue and finish nails. If your banquette will have a filler piece that won’t hinge open — for instance to fit in a corner or to go around post — combine the filler pieces with the top piece of the framing for a more seamless look. If you do have one of these non-opening top pieces, be sure to make them the same size as the opening piece including additional width for the hinge. Also, you’ll want to round-over the front edge of the bench top to make it more comfortable.

Installing beadboard is a great way to decorate the face of the bench. Simply cut the beadboard to the appropriate height, apply construction adhesive to the back (Image 1), and install it to the face of the bench (Image 2). For added strength, add a few finish nails to the beadboard, but make sure the nails are short enough that they don’t pierce the open inside storage area of the bench (Image 3). This can be done using 4′ x 8′ sheets of beadboard, but it’s easier to install using the snap-together modular wainscotting material.
