I posted earlier about a boot/shoe bench I was building for the cabin out of scrap lumber leftover from making bunky boards (for the four kids’ beds at the cabin) out of 3/4” birch plywood 4’x8’s. I had an image of what is should look like months ago, but I’ve done enough projects to know that my head and my hands don’t always connect.
I started here:
Quickly turned it into this:
And after coats and coats of paint (cheap paint over expensive primer is still….cheap paint on plywood), it actually turned out just as I had dreamed. And, yes, I daydream about such things as boot benches. It is sturdy and rustic and practical and useful and cost me all of a gallon of cheap red paint and the use of my garage for a month to park the minivan.
I can’t say much for the architect, but the engineer and general handywoman did a great job making somewhat sketchy measurements fit perfectly into its spot.
Now you will have to excuse me. I need to go ice my shoulder. I may have patted myself a little too much over this project.
