This is a simple piece that I made for use by our entry door. The purpose is to clear up the clutter and give a place to sit while putting on or taking off shoes. The wood is white ash. The finish is natural Danish Oil and polyurethane, to protect against water, mud, snow and such.

This project was a good way for me to get some real practice with my recently-acquired jointer and planer. It is the first time that I have been able to start a project with rough lumber.

nice job! It sure is rewarding working with lumber from rough sawn to final product, isn’t it.

Hi Chuck, You did a great job. Nice choice of wood. I bet your project list grew ten fold now that you have a jointer and planer. Nice design. Can’t wait to see some more postings from you.

Very nice bench. I remember well the first time I built a piece starting from rough lumber. My next step is waiting for the giant, black walnut tree in my backyard to come down and go from tree to furniture. Great design and great job!!!

I know it’s been up for a while, but wanted to say thanks for posting this. It’s exactly what my wife has been asking me for and will be my weekend project this weekend. :)

I am glad that you found this to help you out! This piece has been right next to our door for nine years and gets more use than anything I have built. The original polyurethane has been through a lot and held up fine.

Have fun!
