Wood is Beetle Kill Pine from Colorado. The top slab is 60” long by 17”wide. The legs I made from 3” stock with T&G sides and back. Shoe shelf is 7” and 10.5” for boots underneath. Measures 20” tall. Finish is the usual Watco danish oil and poly.

This is really rustically kool. It’s got some heft to it, and plenty o beauty.

A perfect shoe storage and a bench in one. A wonderful piece of work and totally matches the walls and floor. Need this one in the house. Brilliant idea.

I’d like to think that is just a simple piece of bench but it’s not. It’s fantastic.
