This is to be put by our front door. Made of scrap wood from around the shop. Mostly oak. top is made of poplar and the small rail is pine. Ended up painting it because that’s what my wife wanted.

Very nice. I have been planning to build something like this, so I hope you don’t mind if I put it in my “Favorites” for future reference.

It’s always good to keep the wife happy.

Looks like a great job.

Great idea! Ditto! My wife has been asking for this too. Planning to incorporate your idea here into a hall tree.

Very nice!
I like the seat on top of a shoe rack idea. Consider it “borrowed”. ;-p

I just finished a bench myself, love your design. Seems we woodworkers have a thing about painting our projects, but if that is what the wife wants….....been there, done that…lol
