Here is a bench that I made for my Dad’s birthday. It was built to be put in the garage to avoid my mother from piling too much stuff right by the door. I got the idea from a different bench that I found on here. The bottom cross bars organize shoes that are stored out in the garage. The majority of the bench is made from 8/4 maple with 1 piece of curly maple and some walnut pieces. I used a 1” walnut dowel to attach the top to the legs which worked out quite well.

Dad seems to like the bench and it is currently in the garage. Last time I was home I told him that he needed to dust the bench every so often.

Thanks for looking

lovely design. I’d have the top polished to a gloss with my backside with daily use.
