This is what I consider my first real wood working project. At the time my shop consisted of a table saw, an inexpensive compound miter saw, and hand-held power tools. The face frame and top are soft maple. The carcass and shelves are Baltic birch assembled with dados cut on the table saw. The face frame was assembled with pocket screws and is one piece wrapping around both sides. If I could do it over I would take a different approach to the face frame. Curves were cut with a jig saw and finished with files, rasps, sanding blocks, drill attachments, and anything else I could find in the garage. Overall I am pleased with the result and the wife it putting it to good use…in a closet.

Nice job Jeremy, it looks as if it will hold shoes nicely and look good doing it.

Have a blessed day and Merry Christmas, Todd

Women sure love them shoes, about like how guys love their tools….....:). Good job on the design and build!

Have your say...
