« Part 8: Clean up and Finish prep Part 9 of shoe bench series no next part

To finish the bench I used my favorite finish, a few coats of thinned tung oil followed by paste wax. I like an oil finish because I think it leaves the most natural feeling surface. It may not be the most durable but I like the look and the feel and it is pretty easy to renew. This bench shouldn’t be seeing harsh use, not like a table or desk top.

I added a couple drawers for scarves or gloves, and I’ll probably end up with a row of coat hooks on the wall behind it, but it’s a start.

Anyhow, here it is done. We are glad to have it and even though most of the shoes are picked up, there’s still a pair or two kicked off in the doorway.
