My wife always complains about my shoes all over the house and it dawned on me! I need to make a shoe bench!. I googled some images of different designs and found one by Jesse O’hara found here

I really liked the curves of this bench so I began to construct something with a few similar curves. The bench is made from African mohagany and hard maple. The finish is BLO and wipe on poly. All comments welcome!

A real beaut. It looks sturdy enough to park a truck on. Its beautiful and keeps you out of trouble, great piece of work.

At my house, it is my wife that is always leaving her shoes around. If I built her something that looked that good (even if I could) she would just use it for knick-knacks and still scatter her shoes!

great job! The shoes look out of place on it… What did you make the legs out of? What dimension lumber did you buy?
