Introduction: How I Made Entryway Storage Bench

In this Instructable I'll show you how I made this Small Shoe Storage Bench. It's a great way to capture all the shoes in our entryway and has been a welcome addition to the house. It's made out of wood from the home center (other than the walnut top which could be subbed for other material) and has easy construction methods.
