Entry shoe storage bench

This cherry and makore shoe bench is small in size because it has to fit in just off the entry door. Made from a back yard cherry tree from my folks house. I kept trying to stain samples to try to make it look more like the store bought cherry but decided to keep it plain. Each side is from two boards and it is hard to tell where the joint is even up close. I edge banded the front of the sides by steam bending thin pieces of makore to match the hand rests. I added a little contrast to the hand rests with cherry stain. The center Tsuba inlay is a copy from Greene and Greene. I recommend a mask when working with makore.

-- Style is simple, but not my execution of it.

You did yourself proud on this little gem : ) All of those little details make this piece way too elaborate to put my shoes on !
