Rotating Shoe Tree

A buddy of mine asked me if I could help him build his wife a shoe tree that he had a picture of. He is a good guy so of course I said yes. He showed up this morning with three sheets of 3/4” plywood and three sets of lazy Susan hardware. This is what we put together. It has three rotating sections and each level is divided into six compartments. We modified our version by making the bottom compartments 20” tall to accomodate her boots. Cut the plywood circles with a jig for the band saw and the dividers were put in place with glue and finish nails. Thankfully he took it home to prime and paint.

Not a bad idea you guys came up with Buster. Too small for my wife’s shoes. This would make a cool power tool rack.

Nice job, Buster! Great idea to make the bottom shelf taller for boots. Did Mrs. Buster see it and order one? That’d be great for tools or craft supplies or food or… Thanks for sharing!

Good job Bud! I saw this on Facebook and sent a copy of the ad to my niece. She has a shoe fetish !
She wrote back and said she would need THREE of them! :-)

Very practical and space saving solution you can get any shoe you want easily.

Great work Buster. It sure beats shoes all over the closet floor (that would be our house) :-)

Thanks everyone for your comments. Been an interesting past couple of months here. A few weeks ago it was snow with single digit temps and today I mowed my yard for the first time this year… Lol gotta love living in the south.

Another fine job by BusterB! I just mentioned to my wife last evening that you have not posted in a while. Glad to see you are still making sawdust. I really like the shoe tree, also glad I don’t have to pay for the shoes to fill it. I did NOT mow the lawn today, it’s still under three feet of snow. When that melts it will be grass sitting on a foot of mud hahaha. keep them projects coming buddy.

Thanks Jeff and Marty. Have spent the last couple of months working on little projects but got a bigger one in the works. will probably need you guys to bail me out on it. A guy wants me to convert some old church pews into a farmhouse table…. the basic build shouldn’t be too bad but he wants a fixed base with a top that cant accommodate leafs….a massive challenge for me without a doubt.

Hey Dave….don’t even get me started on the “for free” projecting…lol the fourth pic is the one my buddy Gene based the project on. He painted his yellow with black trim on the edges. I am gonna add it to this post….
