My wife wanted something for our foyer. I decided that a hall tree could be a fun build. Like all of my furniture projects, I used pine. This was the first project that really allowed me to use my new bandsaw. I wanted to get away from 90’ angles. I tapered the legs and the sides. I also used the bandsaw to resaw the 2×6s to 1/2” thick for the back panels. It was a lot of fun.

Nice job on the hall tree, I made one about a year ago and I just love it, but for me I did not stain it but burnt the wood and then put on tung oil. Next one I make will be painted white. Once more nice job and have fun with the bandsaw.

I didn’t use plans. I just started cutting wood. That is what I ended up with. Glad you like it.

I probably had around $100 or so in the materials. I used some scrap birch plywood that I had laying around for the panels and the bottom. The rest is made up of pine 2×4s and 2×6s. The back boards are not actually a panel. I left them separate and actually screwed them into the top and bottom from the back.
