My wife wanted a bench for guests to sit down on when removing or putting their shoes on when they came to visit. After looking at many designs on line I chose two that I really liked and combined aspects of each along with my choice of woods. My son Dan and I built it. Here is the final result. Oak, Red Heart, and Padauk.

Good looking bench Dale! Clean lines and great idea having storage in it. I wish we had a place to put a bench like yours. I like the idea of No Shoes in the house!
Thanks for sharing!

Very nice design Dale and beautiful workmanship on it too. I like the wood choices and color contrast. Most of us here in Norway have hardwood floors and wearing shoes in the house is a no no, but not everyone is thoughtful enough to provide a place to sit down to remove or put their shoes on!

This is really nice, clean, and the wood combos are awesome, I think.
