My wife wanted a place to store all of our Son’s outdoor clothing. She had bought 6 11” cube storage containers to use in the project. I found a piece online that had storage below and above and she approved.

This was a relatively quick project as most is plywood. Plywood projects, while not as rewarding as a solid wood project, five an instant satisfaction because they go so quickly since they only need to be cut to final dimensions. I used my Festool Domino for the joinery. That machine was very expensive, but makes joinery go a lot quicker when you are not trying to be fancy. 😃

I created the boxes for the bottom and top, with a piece of plywood connecting them in between. To finish it off, I milled up some oak for the edging, coat hook and bench. I made it the same height as the cabinet beside it, but perhaps I should have made it a foot, or so, shorter.

Since our entranceway has a darker wood stain, we stained it to match. My wife stained it and I sprayed on the finish.
