This shoe cabinet was custom made for my neighbor, dimensions 85×40x45cm. It was made of firwood laths (slats) 4.5×2.5cm.
I didn’t make fingerjoints – laths are glued that way to form fingerjoints.
There is no finish since his wife wants to paint it when choose right colour. Bottom vertical fingerjoint slats are 5mm longer to form small ’’legs’’ of cabinet. It will also serve as bench at anteroom.

Very well done Ivan. I like the clean design and nice that it is also a bench. The hole used to open the doors with also add a lot to it’s appearance.

I like the look without paint!
If it was mine I would just lacquer the box with a clear non-yellowin lacquer.

As Jerry said that was a elegant way to create finger joints!

Very nice job! Like others, you fooled me on joints.
I’m going to remember how you did them.

Thanks all for comments. I’m glad that those type of joinery was noticed in this pretty usual and common, simple design.

I like it. Sometime simple is better, I think. The clean design and quality execution make it praiseworthy.
