This bench was made as a place to sit down and take your shoes off after tromping around in the barn. The client wanted to keep it outside on a covered porch for most of the year so it is made out of cypress, a rot resistant wood, and is finished with a marine varnish. The copper screen will eventually patina after exposure to the elements. There is plenty of airflow to allow the shoes and wood to dry out.

We are very happy with the work Meredith did on a custom-sized bench with shoe storage. The furniture is exactly what we wanted, and it was made quickly and is of very good qualify. We got regular updates on the project; Meredith is a total pro. The shipping service she used packed the bench appropriately and there was no damage of any kind. They could have been better about scheduling the delivery, as it took three tries for them to find us at home, but that was a very small issue. Overall, we are very happy with the experience and would definitely consider Meredith for another project. Thanks!
