Hi everyone. I’m fairly new to the site but love seeing all your projects. Up until recently everything i’ve built has been pine and screwed together. I have found a local source for hardwoods and have made some tool investments to try and get into woodworking a little more and I am loving all the inspiration and information on here.
Anyway, onto the project. My wife has wanted a new shoe-rack for quite some time and I was wanting to try some new techniques. This was constructed of red oak (with cherry stain), and walnut for the accents. The shelves were all assembled using Marc Sommerfeld’s tongue and groove set (an awesome investment in my opinion). Then they were attached to the sides using mortise and tenon joinery. The sides were also constructed using m&t. This was my first attempt at mortise and tenons, and I couldn’t be happier.
Thanks in advance for looking, and for any constructive criticism. I will be posting more projects later
