Entryway Bench

We already had a coat rack (which we painted to match the red of the bench) and so we simply made the bench portion of this plan. This was my first non-shelf project since acquiring my Kreg Jig for Christmas and now that it is done I am very pleased with it. I learned a lot about the importance of straight boards here. Those final pieces went on with a certain amount of force! Also, I asked the folks at HD to cut my boards for me to save time (which it certainly did), but their blade caused a lot of splintering on the edges which I spent a lot of time trying to remedy. In the future I will take care of cuts (assuming the boards will fit in my vehicle). Lots of learning, lots of fun.
