My second project. Wife wanted a bench to set by the garage door for storing shoes. It is also made to
sit on to put on or remove shoes. I made it out of big box SYP. Learned to use a mortise and tenon jig. Also had enough kindling :) to start the first fire of year. I used satin black kyrlon with poly on the natural part.
Its hard to be 65 and a newbee!

Age doesn’t matter as long as you’re willing to learn. Nice bench.

I guess the hard part is now realizing what you’ve been missing out on for all those years, your work certainly doesn’t show your inexperience!

Thanks guys. Its good to get comments back from the Pro’s. I’m just amazed at how long it takes me to
make simple things. Good for the heart and soul though!
