Sturdy bench offers a comfortable place to sit and change your
shoes—or simply collect your things on the way out the door! Slatted shelf
underneath provides handy storage for boots and other gear.
Made entirely of solid ash, the bench uses knock-down hardware fittings to tie
the end frames to the seat and shelf. These fittings provide a simple way to assemble
the bench. More importantly, they provide a rock-solid connection that prevents
the bench from racking. This woodworking plan appeared in Workbench magazine
