My friends wife asked her if I would make her this shoe rack. The plans were online in metric so I converted them to standard and modified them a little bit to cut down on the amount of lumber needed. I built my first router circle jig for this project it worked great. I used the pocket hole jig to put this together. I added a lazy susan underneath it that turned out to be more of a challenge than I thought it would be. All in all it did not turn out too bad.

excellent!!!! I’m actually starting on a couple of these over the upcoming holiday. What type of wood/paint/primer did you use? how tall does the complete rack stand?

Nice job. I’m retired but a few of my former co-workers are on me to make one of these for them. In my experience, with the ladies, shoes are like tools…you can never have enough.

Thanks for all the comments. The rack sits 51” tall the circles are 27 1/2” in diameter. As far as materials I used 1/2” birch plywood and two coats of white latex paint. The free plans I started with is built slightly different but I can’t stand to leave things alone had to modify it.
