My last time trying to do real woodworking with construction lumber in a long while. Entry for the current Reddit woodworking 2×4 challenge. Huge exercise in frustration trying to make the wood do stuff it just didn’t want to, but the end result is sturdy enough for 250 pounds on top and for $2 in lumber, looks pretty damn good with the cedar coat rack on top…

Nice job on that shoe bench. Those are so handy and keep the floor clear of loose shoes ( if they use it?).

Cheers, Jim

Thanks!

Mommy makes the kids use it so it will see some good use. Also its 14 inches so a good height for the kids to use to put shoes on.

Thanks! Would have taken 1/3 as long with regular materials :) but the challenge was a lot of fun.
