I needed a basic bench for the backdoor with some shoe storage space. A quick run to the lumber yard and a weekend making sawdust. Tada!

Nothing fancy, but I’m not fancy so it works out. The bench looks odd in the first pic there… that’s my wide angle lens causing distortion due to my lack of awesome.

Thanks for looking.

I really have to say that I like the proportions of the piece and the inlay. It really adds a beautiful line to the bench that gives it just the right amount of pop.

Well done.
