Tools: Free wood, circular saw, palm sander

This was another scrap wood project. I had a few lengths of 2×10 and wanted to make a simple bench in our entryway. After finishing the bench I realized it would be a great place to store my son’s shoes, and added a shelf.

This was a fun little project as I only used a circular saw, and built a little jig to help create the dado cuts so that the legs could be inset into the bench top. It is a bit rough, but was good practice for the next project.
