DIY Hairpin Leg Wooden Bench

I’ve been in love the the hairpin leg tables and benches lately. I finally gave in and ordered some hairpin legs, I just couldn’t resist any longer. To make this bench affordable, I used wood that I had left over from other projects; so my only real expense was the legs. I decided how big […]
