Needed a little organization shelf to keep the watch, keys, wallet, sunglasses, etc off the ledge at the top of the stairs.

Carcase is pine. The rest is Walnut. Finished with danish oil and wipe on poly.

I also added a little slot for coins to slide into the drawer.

Here’s all the pictures:

Rick, I truly do like this organizer ! It is beautifully made and I love the contrasting woods and color. I can see how useful something like this is, great piece ! If I were to build this project I would do only one thing different, I would probably put drawers all the way across or even fill in the one cubby hole with 3-4 drawers . Just to balance out the over all design. Thanks for posting and once more nice job ! Adding to my favs.

Really nice work and I like the use of pine.
Robsshop has the right idea of filling atleast one cubby with multiple drawers.
Still a great project and one I would love to have in my home.

Absolutely sharp looking. Kind of has an oriental feel. Excellent work, Rick!

Thanks guys. I really appreciate it.

You know, I was thinking about putting more drawers in it. However, knowing how my wife and I are at storing junk where we find a hiding spot for it, I decided to not include them.
That being said, there is still a possibility that I’ll add some to it. If I feel that they won’t end up being junk drawers.

Thanks again.
