I finished my shoe bench today and what an experience let me tell you. The design is based off the tens bench at http://www.woodistry.com/shoe_bench.htm his is a billion times better than mine. Originally I planned on this being just a prototype made from less expensive materials and I was going to make the final bench out of maple and walnut. Instead I think I will keep this bench for a while, I really like it and I don’t think i could part with something I worked so hard on so easily.
This was my first prject using stain, edge glueing boards together and tapers. I learned a lot and see a lot of mistakes I made that I will have to avoid next project. There are also a few things wrong that I don’t understand why, but my woodwokers guild meeting is next thursday and I plan on bringing the bench with me to ask the far more experienced what I did wrong.
