This is a bench I created for my entryway. In California we don’t have Mudrooms…but with winter rain it still nice to have a place to drop your stuff.
I designed this piece to be both practical and beautiful and I am really proud of this one. I wanted a place for us to be able to drop off shoes, jackets, umbrellas, hats and backpacks at the door instead of all over.
This was the first time I made dados for case work. The first time I biscuit joined pieces, and my first butterfly.I learned a lot!
