Over the last six years we have had a 27” X 3” plank of Wally World “oak” with six “brass” coat hooks next to our front door. Having moved down here for over a year, we noticed that the area under the coat rack seemed to be a magnet for everything from boxes of dog bones (for the local dogs that stop by to visit) to stuff that we still aren’t too sure how it go there. My better half suggested that a hall tree with storage chest would make the entryway look a whole lot better. Needless to say, it gave me another opportunity to see what could be done with raised panels and mixing different species of wood. Even learned how to upholster a padded seat for the storage chest. Retirement is a wonderful thing :-)

I keep hearing about this mythical retirement thing…. If it allows me to be 1/2 as talented as you seem to be, I’ll take it! :) Job well done, makes the entry way look great.
