In the Northwest, most people remove their shoes when they go into a home weather it’s their own or they are the guest of someone else. Maybe because it is so rainy here or maybe because of the influence of the Asian population; what ever the reason, it sure keeps the floors much nicer and carpets are a lot cleaner hence walking in your socks is a common thing.
I built this to fit a certain space and it is 18 inches high: the same as a chair so one can sit or put their foot up, whatever your preference. The top was made of all of my scraps so it is butcher block as you will see in one photo. I had some leftover oak ply (1/4”) that I used for the panels and the frames were some scrap I had from a previous project. I only had to purchase one piece of oak stock for the top and bottom rail on the back panels.
Being in the Coast Guard, our son and his family move a fair amount so this bench has been from Seattle, to Buffalo, to Washington DC and now back in Seattle so I could finally get this photo. Hence, it has a bit of wear on it but standing up to a lot of hard use: like the floor in the house they just moved into. Looks like the previous owners didn’t take off their shoes.
