Needed some better shoe and coat storage in the entry way. Got the design out of one of my wood magazines and modified it to fit the space. Built of cheap edge-glued pine panels and a 2×4 base and painted with spray enamel after priming and topcoated with a clear lacquer.
I would like to mention that the edge-glued pine panels I bough at Menards were largely junk. The panels all varied in thickness and were 5/8” on the low end so I had to plane and power sand them all down to that thickness instead of the 3/4” I originally planned. Several of the panels split at the edges so little to no glue had been applied during construction. I had to re-glue several of the boards together. I bought these generally to save time but I’d have been better-off gluing my own panels together. I’ll never buy that junk from them again.
