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.
