I have a back porch/laundry room that I go into every morning before I leave for work and I got tired of sitting on the floor to put my work boots on, so I built this bench. The pictures aren’t well lit and the bench is finished in a dark stain, so it might be hard to make out exactly what it looks like. It’s six feet long, 16 inches deep and 16 inches high. Fits really well where I need it and now my mornings are much more comfortable.

-- If I could just get this whole "Time/Money" problem figured out...

I like the look of it, lots of grain action and looks like that is a good finish for a piece like that

You know, (without going to look at it) I think I used pine plywood for the vertical pieces and solid pine for everything else. I am, so far, primarily a pine person…mostly for budget reasons but also due to my lack of knowledge of other types of wood. Starting to work with red oak a bit, but still quite a virgin to the rest.
