Shoe Rack Bench

This was my very first woodworking project. I definitely made some mistakes but nothing major, and I learned! This was really fun and straightforward. I’m very happy with the results. Plus it’s a very solid piece. It took me awhile because of the dry times for the stain and finish. Everything else was pretty quick, though. 
When staining, I just covered one side at a time and quickly wiped it away to get a more rustic look.
