Our entry-way quickly and easily became a piled-up mess of coats, hats, and boots (OK, mostly the mess was my fault), which led to the building of this project becoming a high priority before winter. So the Mrs suggested I get on it – darn, time to get in the shop (sarcasm) ;) We found a design that we both liked, and I got this Hall Tree Storage Bench knocked out. Very straight-forward cabinet project. Mostly 3/4 red oak ply with 4/4 oak completing the face-frame, and solid wood seat bench. It was the first time I’ve made any drawers – that was a learning experience (no dovetails for this beginner, I just used a drawer-lock router bit). The drawers “slide” on low-friction drawer tape. Sprayed on four coats of poly using my HVLP.
Fun and functional project, but the name is a mouthfull – I’m up for some suggestions on just what to call this thing!!!
