  • Building a Dog-leg Bench

    I would like to build a dog-leg organ bench to replace my conventional one. I cannot find any plans online. Anyone know where I could find such plans? Thanks.

    Re: Building a Dog-leg Bench



    I've got that style of bench on a few instruments that I've got/had but I've never seen a real set of construction plans. I know that on a couple I've had some of the dimensions varied a bit to fit the pedalboard (width/height), keyboard height, etc. to match the instrument. Seems some of the little details and shapes in the "foot" pieces were designed to compliment the console so they also varied a bit. What organ are you going to use it with?



    Sorry I couldn't help you with a real set of plans but if you run into a stone wall on this one and want to try to roll your own using some pictures, tracings, measurements, joint details, etc. I'd be happy to provide some based on one of my Rodgers benches. You could use that as a starting point and make any adjustments that you needed. The construction would seem to be fairly easy to figure out given some of those basic details.

      Tinker,



      Thank you. It's very kind of you to offer. Today, I did find a couple pics of benches on two commercial websites. One had line drawings. These will be a good start. Right now, I am using a Rodgers 530 but will be replacing it with a Rodgers Allegiant 678 in a couple months. It's safest to wait til I can measure the pedalboard, though it is AGO. I'm tall and most benches are way too low for me, so I'm looking forward to making a custom bench.
