That’s what the customer called it. After a brief conversation, I realized that this is what he wants. They were happy with it. Beetle Kill Pine. 36” tall, 38” wide and 14” deep. They have a few children and needed a place for shoes.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

The 6 board bench, err Shoe Parking Structure, looks great.

Very nice, and I like the back board on it with the natural edge.

Really like the ‘tornado’ on the back! Kind of appropriate for a piece to do with kids! Thanks for sharing, Monte!

Nice piece, if the shoe issue is anything like the one in my house though it will be too small. Course a bookcase may be to small. :)

Nice, Monte. A place to sit and a place to put those muddy shoes.
Six boards and no DTs….Awesome!

“Shoe parking structure” was a new term for me as well but you nailed the design. Great choice on the top back slab!

Looks like just the thing for little “rug rats”! :-)
