Quick build, mud room shoe bench made from big box construction #2 pine and some 1/4” floor underlayment plywood. Because of the depth at 20”, I decided to hinge the seat for more access to the top shelf, where shoes can be stored double deep.
Finish is a couple of coats of Arm-R-Seal wiping varnish. Joinery is mortise & tenon.
Thanks for looking.
