These were a fun Quick project for my honey. The oak one I build out of an old bar top, that I salvaged from dump. It smelled a little like wiskey, Very hard wood, we finished that with BLO. The other whie one we whitewashed and couple coats of exterior poly. Thanks for looking, Bob.

They look great, I am sure she is pleased with them. I like the drawers in the white bench, they add functionality along with a visual aspect.

I love them! Did you design them yourself? We have been kicking around what to put in our hallway so people can sit and take off their shoes, and either one of these would be perfect.

Thanks for the kind words guys.
Helkat I built 4 benches, 2 got away before I got a picture. I had a back leg pattern, then just built around that, Modified them to the reciever. Not to handy with plans, I always make my wood fit. Thanks for looking,Bob
