We needed a place to keep our shoes at the back door entrance but we wanted something to match our existing breakfast table in the area.  I came up with this shoe bin made from birch plywood with mahogany edge trims, and finished with gel stain and polyurethane/tung oil. I didn't have too many pictures to document this project for some reason but this is what I came up with in the end...

Contemporary and simple design and construction.
