This is a project which like many of mine is from salvaged wood. In this case red oak, & as it comprised of lumber from different sources it took a little doing(clawing through my stash pile)to come up with compatible grains. The wife called it a deacon bench but in my opinion it is too small so I call it a boot box.

Nice work! Did you recreate the baseboards to match the box?
