Making a Floating Banquette – Full Build Video

John Heisz - Floating Banquette

My house is small and doesn’t have a formal dining area. However, there is space in the fairly large kitchen to put a small table and chairs making it an eat-in kitchen.
I decided to build an L shaped bench in the corner rather than chairs, giving it a more custom look. And to make it challenging (and get the look I want), it doesn’t have legs or storage underneath to support it.
The banquette is built around the cushions I ordered a few years ago and solidly attached to the walls behind it. My kitchen has more of a modern look and is made from maple, so that’s what I used here as well.
