Make a DIY Industrial Style Scaffold Shoe Bench

This stylish, shoe rack / bench is probably the most practical piece of space saving furniture you could ever make.  And it is very easy to make.  It utilises dead space under the seating area for shoe storage by having a robust cable basket tray mounted on the base.  Fix casters to the feet for an even more flexible solution.
