This is not “fine woodworking,” but the simple design does a wonderful job of knocking most of the dust and dirt off the shoes before entering.
To cut the notches the for the under supports I just cut slots in the boards an inch apart then popped out every other one with a chisel and hammer.
The slats on top do not have rounded edges so the sharp corner catches the shoe with more bite knocking off more dust.
I would recommend this simple design for beach houses where tracking in sand is a problem.
Still, I look forward to adding dust collection to my shop and cutting down on the huge amount of dust on the floor in the first place.
P.s. The pictures ended up sideways once uploaded here. How do I fix that?
