Nook Ordering Options

The total cost of your project depends on its size, and whether or not you choose to buy our cushions.  Your kit ships with all (both) the tools you need to assemble them.  See our gallery for example pricing.

Shape and size  

This is up to you!  Your assembly could be U-shaped, L-shaped, or just a straight bench.  Our standard depth and height are 26" and 36" respectively, but these can be tweaked to accommodate your space and needs.

The Wood  

By default our kits are cut from elegant, robust 3/4" (18mm actually) clear-coated  Euro-core Baltic birch plywood.  This zero-VOC recipe has a 13-layer cut edge that is solid and beautiful all the way through.  The veneer has a rare but occasional knot patch.

This birch product is certainly your best value for a beautiful and sturdy result.  But if you need to match existing cabinets we can source alternative veneers such as maple and walnut.  And we can use 1/2" (12mm) material for lightweight pieces.  Ring us to chat about the options.

For true coziness and elegance, we highly highly recommend our cushions!  They are wonderfully comfortable, long-lasting, and are hand-made by seasoned marine upholsterers to exactly fit your bench or booth.  This is your chance to personalize your room with a lovely lane of color and texture.

We use a 3" thick, high-density foam with a published life of 12-18 years.  This is wrapped in Dacron batting to plump out your covers for a neat, wrinkle-free look.  


For a classic tweedy feel choose one of these cozy fabrics.

Feeding a toddler?  If you anticipate a lot of flying food, choose one of these marine fabrics for easy wipe-up.

If you have option anxiety, we can look at your space and work with you to identify the perfect fabric.
