Hallway bench – project for my home – 115×32 x 32 (70) cm – poplar, finish non glossy laquer. Besides decorative purpose, those holes have practical purpose also , as handles during transport or moving. All screwed with black drywall screws. Canvas pillow – ordered. Project who waited so long to be finished – now it’s very comfortable to change footwear sitting on that, instead on cold stone stairs.

Nice job Ivan. You know the stairs wouldn’t feel that cold if you put your pants on first. ;-)

Nice. I like the hole pattern and the hump on the center board.

Looks great and having a spot to store shoes plus to sit to put them on…well, that’s a win win.

Wow, nice bench Ivan. We need this at our back entrance. Nice job with the wood orientation.

Nice work Ivan, and really practical, not to sit on the stone floor as well as having storage.
Best thoughts,
