My daughter was looking for just this sort of bench for her small garage. Thanks for the info.
A friend had something similar with a swivel rest and I tried making one, but I didn't use the stops you suggest. The one I made took too much effort to keep from swiveling too far; the stops you suggest would solve that. If you go that way, I recommend putting them in toward the center of the rest portion so they don't readily show. You might want to try using two boards to make the rest portion and make a central channel in the opposing faces for a rod that goes all the way through between them with a Chicago screw on each end and a decorative cap covering them outside the legs. Just some thoughts to help you along. Good luck!
