If anyone remembers about a week ago Charles Neal built one of these on the net. It finally cooled down about 15 degrees here today so I thought I’d give it a try. It was a fun build thinking of doing more maybe I can sell them….....................................Schloemoe

Gotta love that good ole Southern Pine. Nice bench. I would bet that you could sell those. What type of joinery did you use? It’s hard to tell from the pics.

Looks good Schloemoe, clean lines, simple build, looks like you should be able to do them in multiples easily enough.

Very nice bench.

I’d like to build something similar, but with a shoe shelf underneath. I envision the shelf being “L” shaped on an angle? It would fit nicely in the mud room and provide a place to sit and tie shoes at.
