Doing It Yourself isn’t always the easiest or cheapest option, but odds are you won’t find anything more satisfying than finishing a DIY project with your own two hands. Each week, we’re going to showcase one cool DIY project tutorial from around the web.

If we’ve learned anything about home decorating over the years it’s that every place needs at least one quality bench. You can use it to put your shoes on when you’re heading out in the morning, and also use it to drop your bag on when you get home. It will work as extra seating or a coat rack during a party. You can display your shoes underneath it. With a single 2×12, some 3/4″ gas pipe fittings and Ben Uyeda‘s tutorial on HomeMade Modern you’ll have a bench that looks so good your friends will probably try to steal it. Oh yeah, and the entire project can be completed in around 15 minutes (not including the trip to Home Depot) for under $150.

[Shop]  Just like the stash boxes that lined your father’s workbench back in the day, these metal vessels are ideal for all sorts of loose necessities. The two cases—the smaller one is nestled inside the larger one—are both made of durable stamped steel and offer simple, attractive storage for EDC gear, loose nuts and bolts, or anything you’d normally toss in your kitchen junk drawer. Each set is made in Italy and comes in a stealth color exclusive to Cool Material. For all the valuable knickknacks strewn around the house or tossed haphazardly on your workbench, these boxes are ready to placate your inner organizational fiend.
